Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northern Georgia? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northern Georgia,
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. If you find anything outdated or
inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what
the typical prices are for each crop.
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!

What's in season in July 2020, and other timely information:
Notes for July 2020: Summer is almost here! Strawberry season is finishing in the South but is going strong now in most areas. Blueberries
and blackberries are starting now in the South, then late June and July in the north. Check your area's
copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for
Now, more than ever, going to a farm, being outside, away from crowds, getting fresh, local produce, makes more sense than ever before! It's a fun, safe
and educational to pick some fresh berries, fruit and veggies and more, then come back here to learn how to freeze, can, make jam, salsa and much more!
Of course, check with the farm before you go, both to check on crop availability and hours. We also have a
state-by-state guide to Farm COVID-19 requirements here.

home canning, jam and jelly
making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access

Comments from a visitor on July 02, 2016: "The Blake Collins Blueberry Farm in
Fannin County, GA is absolutely amazing!!!! No pesticides & my kids had an
incredible blast! Even my 1 year old was picking these gorgeous yummy
blueberries that just popped in your mouth! And the owners were the nicest,
cutest couple ever! Cannot recommend more!!! If you try their blueberries,
you will never want to buy store-bought again!!!"
Comments from a visitor on September 09, 2008: "We visited
the Collins this weekend and were highly impressed! They are so sweet! The
blueberries are wonderful and the Collins let you eat as much as you like
while you pick. Our 3 year old and 22 month old loved it! Only $5 for a
gallon! Bring your own container to take them home. Also make sure you call
before you go. They do not have set hours. The Collin's place is also very
close to Mercier Orchards. Mercier Orchards is fantastic and all the people
are very kind. You choose which size bag you want for apple picking ($8 for
a small bag and $10 for a larger bag). They take you on a tractor ride into
the orchard and drop you off. A guide tells you which apples are good for
picking and each row of apples has a sign telling you what they are. Mercier
Orchards lets you eat as many apples as you want while you pick. If you have
never had a certain kind of apple before they say just try it and if you
don't like it throw it on the ground and move on. We had a blast! The store
is great fun too. You can look through glass and watch how they clean and
package the apples. This place is a must see! "

Comments from a visitor on May 15, 2010: "We went to this orchard to
pick-your-own strawberries yesterday (5/14/10)and I cannot say enough about
how nice they were... the ladies at the front, the people on the tractor (to
and from) and TJ who was out in the field answering everyone's questions. We
found it very interesting and educational about what they told us about the
farm, it's history and how it's operated. We do not have children, but many
others out there did and they seemed to be VERY children friendly. They did
allow you to eat strawberries in the field, the only rule given was "Please
put at least one berry in the bucket for each one that you eat!" LOL! They
still had lots of strawberries ready and you could see more ALMOST ready for
picking. But they were being picked relatively quickly so no telling how
long they will have more... there were lots of picking customers coming and
going. We had such a wonderful experience we are already planning our next
trip for their next crop... Cherries :)!"

Comments from a visitor on May 02, 2011: "Took
my kids to LCCL on Saturday, 4/30/2011 and had a blast! The strawberries
were excellent - there are two large fields for picking your own, and they
rotate so there are fresh berries to pick. The quality of the fruit was very
good, as I bought some pre-picked as well as what we picked. The kids loved
the homemade strawberry ice cream, and the train was an added bonus. The
owners mentioned that if the weather stayed good (meaning we continue to
have rain each week), they hope to keep the farm open through June. "

Unfortunately, due to an unavoidable, unforeseeable issue (which we were

everything to us and was VERY accommodating!! The Orchard, petting farm, and

Comments from a visitor on July 30, 2010: "We visited this blueberry farm today
and had lots of FUN! Mom and I turned into kids again while picking berries
from the 6-8 foot tall blueberry bushes at Roland's. There is a table to
borrow buckets from and a "pay here jar" at the entrance to the main
blueberry field. As you pick the 1/2 cm to 2cm fruit here you can hear the
Chattahoochee River and wildlife all around. Children can easily play hide
and seek here as well as pick berries. If you go late in the day (we were
there at 9am) they may run out of buckets to use. If you don't know what
poison ivy looks like BE CAREFUL because it does grow under some of the huge
blueberry bushes. If you don't want to bend over for berries there are
PLENTY 4ft off the ground and higher. Even kids will find plenty of berries
they can pick. GREAT PLACE!"

Comments from a visitor on May 22, 2011: "Dahlonega Vegetable
Farm Lumpkin County May 2011 Sunday we decided to go strawberry picking
and found several ads on the internet for Dahlonega Vegetable Farm. I
had read the info on your site so I was sure to call the number they
provided to make sure they were open before we left. It was a little
difficult to find and after turning around twice we finally came upon
it. When we walked in the store the bins were barely filled with
strawberries much less any other vegetables. I told the lady at the
counter that we wanted to pick our own and she said they were not
allowing people to pick today. I countered with but your phone line says
that you are "open" today. She replied that the phone line was just for
the store and maybe I should come back another day, possibly Wednesday
but you never know. I was very irritated because we had come along way.
I decided to buy some of their pre-picked berries even though they
didn't look that great. To my dismay, once I got them home, most of the
ones on the bottom of the gallon bucket I bought were rotten. I won't be
back. They are not very customer friendly and it wasn't worth the trip.
Comments from a visitor on May 25, 2010: "We have been picking
strawberries here for the past 5 years as a nice Spring tradition. We
drive 35 miles to get there and normally it is worth it. Today we
arrived about noon and they advised us that they had already picked that
morning (which they always do) but didn't want anyone picking to let
more berries ripen. Their recorded message says they are open for
business and the farm hours but nothing about restricted pick-your-own
berries. I complained about this never being a problem before, our long
trip and no warning on their recording about any restrictions. The girl
said she would tell the owner. This is our last visit to this farm with
this kind of treatment of customers."
Comments from a visitor on May 23,
"We drove up to this farm and arrived around noon. The place was pretty
empty of people and so we got to start picking without having to worry
about waiting in line. They informed us that the Strawberry season
started later do to our cold winter and they hope it lasts longer into
the year. The plants were pretty empty by the time we arrived, but we
were still able to pick about a gallon of berries between the two of us.
They are not sure if they will have other veggies/fruits available for
sale in the shop this year. Right now all they had was strawberries.
They provide buckets to pick in and you can buy the bucket for $1. One
bucket of BYO berries was $12. Checks and cash ONLY."
Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2009: "This listing says to call first, but alas,
there is just an answering machine...was there today (Monday, July 6th)
at 4:30 pm and the place was closed...Fortunately I was already in the
area so it was not a biggie...just very inconsiderate to not answer
phones or have updated times on the answering machine. I also agree that
the person talking on the answering machine is extremely difficult to
understand. And if you go by the address listed, you will not drive far
enough down the road...the mailbox is on the South side of the bridge
and the market is just north of the bridge. "
Comments from a visitor on
July 03, 2009: "Very Disappointing. This farm listed many kinds of
vegetables as well as blackberries, which we were looking for. We tried
to call ahead more than once to see if the blackberries were ready, but
NEVER got an answer, just a difficult-to-understand recording of a
child's voice saying they were open and some of the things they had
available. We decided to go anyway, called the morning we went, got the
same indistinct voice mail saying they were open. We took the kids
hoping for a fun morning of vegetable picking, only to be told when we
got there that there was nothing left to pick in the fields, only
produce in their market. And they Never had had blackberries in spite of
their recently-updated listing on the web. We were very disappointed."
Comments from a visitor on June 13, 2009: "We went yesterday (6/12/09) to
this farm and they still have lots of Strawberries for picking. Beware
that there are steep metal stairs that you have to go down to get to the
strawberries. The people were friendly and the strawberries are
delicious! We picked about 8 quarts of strawberries and it was $15. Our
children were able to eat as they picked. The farm is maybe 10 minutes
or less from downtown Dahlonega. Bring your own container to take the
strawberries home. Also they have great vegetables and other fruits at

Comments from a visitor on July 26, 2009: "I have to say that
this blackberry crop is the most amazing I've ever seen. Thornless bushes w/
berries the size of jawbreakers! They're awesome this year. My wife and I
went on a Saturday and there were only 3 or 4 others there picking. We had
over 14 pounds in 25 minutes. It was so fun I took my children back a few
days later and we got another 8 pounds. This is going to become a regular
stop for us in mid-July each year. Staff was friendly; store was clean;
bathrooms accessible and clean."
