Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Louisville and western central Kentucky?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Louisville and western central Kentucky, 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operating in Russia and China, as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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   I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

What's in season in November 2018, and other timely information:

Notes for November 2018: Autumn is here! Apples, pears, Fall raspberries, figs, winter squash , corn mazes and pumpkin patches are here. And there are still tomatoes, corn and other vegetables in most areas. Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

See these pages to find a local apple festival, and see our guide to apple varieties (when they ripen, best uses), . Also picking tips, recipes, canning and freezing directions for apples, pumpkins, peaches, tomatoes, corn etc.

See our comprehensive list of easy home canning, jam and jelly making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information form here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

Health insurance: Open enrollment is almost here.  You may have heard  that health sharing plans, like Liberty and Medi-Share are less than half the cost of ObamaCare plans. We have a complete, simple comparison of the 6 major health sharing plans here.
