Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Baton Rouge area of Louisiana? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Baton Rouge area of Louisiana,
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 "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!

much limited to Florida, Texas, southern California and a few other areas of the
Deep South. Citus, for one, is a crop that is usually available now; and
in those areas, soon also strawberries and blueberries.Check your area's

Comments from a visitor on March 21, 2010: "Just wanted to post that we have
taken my grandchildren (and friends) to this farm several times and were
always VERY hospitably received. Both children and adults enjoyed a
wonderful experience each time we went. Not mentioned is the fact they
sometimes have a baby lamb on premises and the children love to pet and feed
him. Thanks for your site!! "
Comments from a visitor on April 26, 2009: "we found a pick-your-own farm thanks
to your website. the idea was to build memories with our children (under 10)
and enjoy some fresh fruit on a picnic in the same day. in fact, the state
park just down the road was perfect and we invited our neihbors along for
the ride. everything was perfect...except for being yelled at and lectured
while on the picking excursion. really. the greeters (hired for the day)
were great. friendly, informative and helpful. they did leave out one key
detail-- that the owner didn't want folks to step over the rows of berries.
our neighbor did so twice in an effort to photograph her kids. she didn't
step on any bushes, not bother any other families. however, the owner's
daughter (old enough to know better) ran over to rip her a new one. not
nice. not neccessary. in the time spent yelling and threatening to make us
leave, she could have simply explained the rule or just asked us to stay in
a single row. no big deal. i guess the pressure of the day may have
contributed to the "emotion" of the scolding. perhaps she had just given the
same speech for the umpteeenthtime that day. it just seemed very odd and
unexpected -- certainly not the genteel easy-going "country" hospitality we
had imagined finding there. oh well, guess that explains the need to hire
greeters. perhaps it owuld be wise to have the farmers leave for the dasy
that tourists come in to pick. may be easier on everyone. we loved the
learning our kids got and the fresh food-- could have done without the "big
city" gripe out session."
Response from the farm on April 27, 2009:
"in response to "Comments from a visitor on April 26, 2009" i would like to reply.
yes, we do have rules. maybe they were not told or did not totally
understand the rules. that is the reason that when i first spotted the
gentleman neighbor jump the row (yes, no jumping over rows is rule #1.....for
safety reasons and to protect the plants and irrigation under the plastic), he
was told not to jump the row. several minutes later the lady neighbor
jumped the row and was told not to jump the row. then, she does it again.
that is when they were told that if it occured again they would need to leave
the field. by the way, the kids did great! on a lighter note, both the family day on april 17th and april 25th were a huge
success. we had a great turn out and, overall, the people were wonderful.
If anyone has comments, positive or negative, please write!
