Remember: ALWAYS call (or follow the link to the farm's own website, if the name is a blue link) to confirm the information before you go! They may close, run out or change events, times, etc. without notifying me!

Note about strawberries in Florida: There are a few strawberry u-pick farms in Florida open during the entire season, which lasts from December through April). Most commercial farms do not open their fields to the general public until the end of the season, which is usually in April (depending on the weather). 

NOTE: The exit numbers on the Interstates have changed, but we have no way of knowing what the new correct exit numbers are until the farmers correct their listings; so be sure to ask when you call the farms!

    Comment from a visitor, November 6, 2007:
    ". Beautiful crops to pick, would go back again. If you love tomatoes as I do try the little yellow ones (pear) - very sweet, low acid. In the farm stand they had loads of fruits, vegetables. I found the owner and employees very helpful and cordial. Friendly like Florida use to be 15 years ago. Do wear old shoes and clothes. I know kids would love it, especially during Strawberry picking (December)...Great choice of veggies and prices...I will go back, to me it was worth the 48 mile drive. For you older residents (as myself). I use to pick his place when he was on Hyploxo Road in Lantana about 10 or more years ago with same name D&D Farms...same owner, same great prices and vegetables/fruit.... "

Home Canning Kits

Features:

Ball Enamel Waterbath Canner, Including Chrome-Plated Rack and 4-Piece Utensil Set

* All the tools you need for hot waterbath canning - in one comprehensive set!
* Complete with 21 1/2 qt. enameled waterbath canner
* Also includes canning rack, funnel, jar lifter, jar wrencher, bubble freer, tongs and lid lifter.
* A Kitchen Krafts exclusive collection.

This is the same type of standard canner that my grandmother used to make everything from applesauce to jams and jellies to tomato and spaghetti sauce. This complete kit includes everything you need and lasts for years: the canner, jar rack, jar grabber tongs, lid lifting wand, a plastic funnel, labels, bubble freer. It's much cheaper than buying the items separately. You'll never need anything else except jars & lids (and the jars are reusable)! There is also a simple kit with just the canner and rack, and a pressure canner, if you want to do vegetables (other than tomatoes). To see more canners, of different styles, makes and prices, click here!
Don't forget the Ball Blue Book!
