Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in New Orleans area of Louisiana?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in New Orleans 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.

If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

New! 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!

    Comments from a visitor on September 13, 2011: "It has always been a very pleasant trip to the Ridemore Berry farm in Covington. The black berries and blue berries are out of this world. Always so big and delicious. The owners have always been so kind and helpful. They also have some of the best veggies. The farm is so beautiful and peaceful. It is so nice to be able to take your own pinic lunch and sit under the shady trees and have the owners sit and have a pleasant conversation with you. The owners also; show you around and offer cold pop cycles to every one. They are the kindest people I know. They have horses and chicken. It is so much fun and the children of all ages have a blast. I can speak from experience with my grand children, they never want to leave."
    Comments from a visitor on June 23, 2011: "We went to Ridemore Farm on Tuesday, June 21st. We had a very nice time and picked lots of sweet berries. We also got some wonderful tomatoes, garlic, pickles and honey! It's a small farm, but the owners were friendly and eager to offer information on which berries to choose and even how to control pests on tomato plants without pesticides. There were 8 of us and we thoroughly enjoyed it! We will definitely go back."
    Comments from a visitor on June 20, 2011: "My experience at Ridemore Berry farm on John Prats road in covington LA was absolutly terribal. I have been berry picking many times since i was a young child so i know what good blueberries look like. First and foremost the business is very unprofessional. The Product was terribal. the berries were dried and small. I went picking at this farm twice so i know it wasnt just because "it was the end of the seasson". When i went there i was told the dogs they own were very territoral. while i was picking the dogs were "accidently left out", and started charging at me and my mother. what if thoes dogs would have attacked? That is putting your paying customers at risk! And when the dogs were chargeing at me i tried to alarm the man who owns this farm that his "territoral" dogs were coming at me. He was not concered and gave me and my mother a gester with his hands that he didnt care and that our concerns were ridiculous. Also while i was picking there were cats all around my feet, and one bit my ankel. Thank goddness i am not allergic to cats or no skin was broken. This farm is law a lawsuit waiting to happen. I was prepared to spend money that day at the farm, but after that it was impossibal to enjoy my time and i was worried the whole time about the dogs. The owners wife was very friendly but the man who owns this place is very rude, and apparently not worried about his customers. There are many farms in covington LA and in Bush LA. i suggest you take your family to Ms. Ketons blueberry farm in bush or Blueharvest berry farm, for they are proffessional and treat their customers properly.
