Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Jackson and western-central Mississippi? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Jackson and western-central Mississippi,
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. If you find anything outdated or
inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) 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 this year 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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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 March 2019, and other timely information:
Notes for March 2019: Not much growing outside at this
time of year, unless you live in southern California, southern Texas, Florida or
along the Gulf coast where citrus are ripe, and believe it or not, the blueberry
and strawberry season in those areas is about to start. See your state harvest calendar
. And this is a good time to learn how to preserve foods ahead of the season,
like making applesauce or jam. See our comprehensive list of
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.
It is also a great time of year and easy to
make your own ice cream,
even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. If you have any questions or suggestions,
feel free to write me!

June 20, 2018, Suggested by a visitor)
A visitor writes on June
20, 2018: "I went to check it out to see if it would be a good
place for my young grandchildren (4 and 6) and it is perfect for
them! No pesticides are used so we can eat right off the bushes.
Lots of high and low branches for all the age groups. The farmer
keeps the grass mowed so there are no fire ants or snakes to deal
with. Parking right next to where the bushes are so it isn't a long
trek to get to the picking zone. $2 quart, btw. I thought I saw
something saying $5 quart online but the reality is much more
affordable. The blueberries are ready by June 2 said the farmer and
by the end of the month are pretty well done. I'll take pics of the
Muscadine picking when I head over there mid-August and let you know
what I think about the vines. Thank you so much for your website!!!
