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

family trip. The national and state parks and monuments are open, and campgrounds usually cost between $10 and $40 per night. September to November is the best
camping weather. See our new website Road Tripping and Camping.com for tips, tricks,
guides, checklists and info about parks, monuments and other places to visit.

Comments from a visitor on June 17, 2010: "Ts is the best place ever!
My family and I have always gone there to pick pumpkins, however in
the last year we have started taking advantage of all the other
produce they have to offer. I had 4 boys with me (ages 6-8) and we
spent nearly 4 hours picking 12 lbs of cherries (ladders were provided
and moved for us) 5 lbs of strawberries and 56 pea pods (cause the
boys just wanted to try fresh peas). There are tractor rides out to
all the picking areas and boxes to use. We have also picked apples and
peaches there as well. Bring a hat, and though they provide water out
in the fields bring you own water bottle. If you ask for
directions-not to far from the farm is the family restaraunt that has
wonderful local fare but save room for the pie! "
Comments from a visitor on September 19, 2009: "Picked apples today at Baughers
Orchard and had a blast! Though there were a lot of people there, we
had no trouble finding parking and then took a tractor ride to the
orchard. There are at least three different play sets for young kids
(elementary and younger) on the grounds, a petting zoo with a sink and
soap for washing up after visiting the animals, and a country store
with baked goods and ice cream. And the pick-your-own apples are very
reasonably priced. A great place to take the whole family! "
