Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in North-Central Maine? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in North-Central Maine,
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as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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!

have Pick-Your-Own high-bush blueberries. Our 350-plus high-bush blueberry
bushes are in two plots, which are finally full-grown. The blueberry season
normally stretches from mid-July all the way through August. Check our
Facebook page or call first to check for availability (to make sure previous
pickers haven't cleaned out the patch for the day).Raspberries. July & early
August We have six varieties of red raspberries. The season is short, but
usually runs from early July into early August. For our raspberries,
pick-your-own is best. Because they are so fragile, we do not sell fresh
raspberries wholesale to stores, and only sell them fresh here at the farm
if they are pre-ordered, and even then we carefully coordinate pick-up with
same-day picking. We should have PYO strawberries in 2019 (call then to
verify!) (ADDED: June 16, 2018)

Comments from a visitor on October 06, 2012: "We called this
orchard the day before to verify that they still had apples. After being told
they did, we showed up to find no apples in sight, and no one answering the
"please ring for service" bell. After walking around the orchard for some
time, we managed to pick 20 or 30 apples. When we finally found someone to
talk to, she insisted they did have plenty apples like they told me, and I
just didn't look hard enough. If it is even remotely late in the season,
skip this orchard, unless you want to get yelled at for being too stupid to
find apples that aren't there."
