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as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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

Noda Farm -
Blueberries, Choose and cut
196 Bean Road, Plainfield, NH 03781. Phone: (603)
Open: see their website. Some of our berry bushes are more than thirty years
old. When they were in their sixties, our parents cleared all the stones
from the meadow and, with many friends, arduously planted Blue Crops and
Berkeleys. We've augmented these in recent years with Patriots, which yield
a smaller, but very tasty, berry. The picking is easy because the bushes are
tall. We're often told that our berries are especially flavorful and sweet.
Wander from bush to bush, moving wherever you wish to go in the field. Free
