New! Road tripping and camping is a great way to have a fun, safe and inexpensive 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.

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!

What's in season in October 2021, and other timely information:

Notes for October 2021: Autumn is upon us and that means you'd better hurry to get blueberries and peaches; apples are already in full swing. Some crops continue until frost, like raspberries, blackberries, figs, corn and tomatoes. Check your area's crop calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal specific updates.

See these pages to find a local Apple festival, and other festivals. We have a guide to apple varieties and a guide to peach varieties. Also recipes, canning and freezing directions for apples, blueberries, 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 from 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  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

    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! "
