Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Bradford and Clay counties, North Florida?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Bradford and Clay counties, North Florida, sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name  (see "What does Organic mean?"). The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function) If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "Eatwell", "pickit" and the ones that ends with ".farm"; they do not verify or update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China, as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly. Since 2002, I make updates daily (each farm as changes are reported, or I find it). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

Remember to always check with the farm's own website or facebook page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with the farm directly before you go! And if you know of any farms I missed and want to add a farm, please let me know!   I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

    Comments from a visitor on June 13, 2009: "Most of the blueberry bushes look fairly young, but there are tons of green berries ready for ripening in the next few weeks. The grass was freshly mowed and even on a hot day there weren't many bugs to deal with and while there is always an anthill or two around I didn't see many of those either. The man that owns the farm was very nice and weighed our berries fairly in plain sight. Blueberry prices were $2.00 a pound this year. They also sell honey from a local beekeeper."
