Find a local pick your own farm here!

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 "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm, and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the information, please let me know!

    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."
