Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in New Jersey?  Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in New Jersey, 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.

What's in season in April 2018, and other timely information:

Notes for April 2018:  Strawberries are one of the first major crops, starting in Florida, southern California and parts of Texas and working northward through April and May and into June.  But in each area, the season is only a few weeks long and highly dependent upon local weather and varieties planted. Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.  FL, TX, CA: Citus is usually available now in those areas along with strawberries and blueberries.

Children's Consignment Sales occur in both the Spring and Fall  See our companion website to find a local community or church kid's consignment sale!

We also have home canning, 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. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information from here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong, please write me!

Other information:

This page provides a detailed list of New Jersey's pick- your- own (PYO, U-pick, pick-it-yourself) farms.  I spent part of my childhood in NJ, and it was here that my folks first took me to a PYO, for blueberries, out in the Pine Barrens near Pemberton! The blueberries are the best in the world there, often the size of a nickel!

We also have a page with links to our own simple instructions on canning, freezing and drying  many fruits and vegetables, such as  how to make jam, apple butter, applesauce, spaghetti sauce, salsa, pickles, ketchup or freezing corn.  

I'm always looking for more to add and feedback about any farm you have visited, please write me using the Feedback form!  And if you have a farm and want to add it or correct the information, please click on Add My Farm!
