Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Central New Mexico? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Albuquerque, Santa Fe and Central New Mexico,
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 If you find anything outdated or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!
Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what
the typical prices are for each crop.
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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -

What's in season in January 2021, and other timely information:
Notes for January 2021: Crop growth is slowing down, except for
Christmas tree farms and if 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 begin. See your state harvest calendar
. This year, much of the country is still seeing mild weather, so lettuce, peas, broccoli, cabbage and other greens are thriving. And this is a good time to
get a canner and learn how to preserve foods for the winter,
like canning some applesauce, apple butter or
jam, which make great gifts. As do your own homemade specialty liqueurs!
How about homemade cranberry sauce or a pumpkin pie made from a
real pumpkin for the holidays? 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.
A fun winter activity is 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!

A visitor writes on September 05, 2014:
"When looking into this pick-it-yourself farm, I found that while they are
based in Corrales, the pick-yourself fields are located 30 miles away in Los
Lunas. I think the directions on your site should include this fact since I
would imagine that driving all the way to the north end of the valley for a
'fruitless' adventure would be frustrating for most. We went today and the berries are all great for $5/pint. Half the
field is off limits for regrowth but the rest is full of sweet berries. Go
before noon. Bing mosquito repellent, they are ubiquitous even at 1 pm.
And anyone with ragweed or other weed allergies , bring allergy medicine;
blooming is in progress, my kid had a huge reaction!"

A visitor writes on August 17, 2016: "Cool
website. I noticed that you requested info about Wagner's Farm and
Wagner's Farmland Experience in New Mexico (Albuquerque and Central
area). The Farmland Experience website is still there:
http://www.wagnersfarmlandexperience.com/ ,and there's a Wagner's
Farm store in Corrales, NM, 5000 Corrales Rd.-Corrales, NM 87048-
Sandoval County. I\'m not sure about a phone number, and I'm not
familiar with the Wagner's spot in Los Lunas. I never go that
direction. They have a large selection of local produce, open
seasonally from July 15 to about November 15. Produce: corn, tomatoes,
squash, cucumbers, peaches, watermelon, cantelope, onions, bell
pepper, pinto beans, peaches, pears, canned goods, apples, pumpkins,
and fresh green chile that can be roasted on the premises. Nope, chile
is not spelled wrong. That's a NM thing. Also a little snack area
called the Apple Tree Cafe, with the same seasonal schedule. "
