Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Central Illinois?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Central Illinois, 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of copycat websites; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us one time, so theirs is usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm, and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the information, please let me know!

You may noticed the new appearance to the website! Simpler, cleaner and mobile-friendly! I'm rolling it out, page by page over the next 2 months. Everything is still here; such as home canning and freezing directions. You can access it from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.

Unfortunately this year (2014) will be a very poor strawberry year for us. The planting last fall didn't get very much growth due to a cooler than normal fall, so not as much production from that field. And the carryover field was almost destroyed by voles over the winter. So all in all, we'll not be able to provide as many berries as we normally do. We'll be open Monday-Saturday, beginning at 8am for berries. We'll close when we sell out. Sorry no orders. Please be patient with us this year. Payment: Cash, Check.  (UPDATED: June 05, 2014, from their website)
