Find a local pick your own farm here!

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operating in Russia and China, as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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   I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!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

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  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!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.

    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! "

  • Johnson's Berry Farm - blueberries, and thornless blackberries 
    17000 Swanson Road, Upper Marlboro, Maryland. Phone: 301-627-8316.
    A visitor reports:
    "I visited this farm this morning and mentioned that I'd found the farm on pickyourown.org and the farmowner was quite unhappy that her farm was mentioned here. She only has 2 acres of blueberries and perhaps 1/2 acre in blackberries and that is all. She says she doesn't want out of county people or even new customers to pick at her farm. During picking season, she is only open on Mon, wed & sats from 8:30 am to 11 am."
    Response from Blake: Tell her, welcome to the 21st century; she cannot stop people from talking about her farm or sharing information about it. Ther farm has a Facebook page and the farm is listed on the State of Maryland's website and many others. I guess if she is serious about being unlisted... well, she'd take down her Facebook page, contact the State of Maryland and the many other public listings for her business. She's in business, and shouldn't discriminate.
