Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Missouri? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Missouri, sorted by county. Farms offering 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?"). If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. And if you are looking for a local farm stand, roadside stand, farm market or local farmer's market, see our new website, dedicated to those! See your state's crop availability calendar for specific dates of upcoming crops. And for Fall fun, see these pages to find pumpkin patches and corn mazes.. and even Zombie paintball.
