Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Cincinnati, Dayton and southwestern Ohio?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Cincinnati, Dayton and southwestern Ohio, 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operating in Russia and China, as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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   I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

My wife and I took 6 kids on an hour and 10 minute car ride to A and M and it was well worth the trip. There was a tractor ride to the orchards which my small boys enjoyed and their trees were literally loaded with beautiful, healthy apples of many varieties. It rained on us the entire time but even my teenage daughters enjoyed themselves. The family that runs the farm was very kind and helpful. We will make this a yearly excursion and I am encouraging my family and friends to go there on an apple picking adventure."

    "This farm is well maintained and the family had a wonderful time!!

    "If you want an experience that is less commercialized and away from the big crowds, try A & M Farm. This is not the big crowd draw that some places are...that is why we love it!! A terrific family runs this Pick-Your-Own apples and pumpkins farm. We go every year and enjoy the cider, hay ride to the fields, following the maps to the apples we like to pick. I always feel like I belong there, like I am not just a visitor.As I mentioned above, I feel so welcome there every year.

They have a small barn/shop with squash, apples, cider,and old fashioned candies for sale. "

    A visitor writes on September 19, 2011: "Amazing orchard. This isn't one of those stands that sells trinkets and country themed home decorations and happens to have a bit of over priced fruit. They have a wide variety of high quality, reasonably priced apples as well as pairs and other fruit. The cider is better than any grocery store brand. It reminds me of the type of orchard we went to as kids and not what fruits stands have morphed into the last few years."
    A visitor writes on July 26, 2009: "I have loved it since i was a child. They are all about the Apples. Apple dummplings- Cider-Yum!! Every year there is a Apple fest in the town of New Paris. You can find it on the web. In tha summer they do tractor tours around the City Of New Paris. Every October they have a haunted chicken coop. You can also buy pumpkins. They used to sell fresh eggs and milk but no longer do. They also sell country store items, such as chairs, candles, exc. It's been there a long time. I use to collect eggs for them when i was a child now I'm thirty some thing."

    A visitor writes on September 21, 2013: "Visited today, 9/21/13: We have visited this farm for many years & it has become a family tradition. The apple fritters & cider are very good. There are some animals for the kids to interact with. In October, there is a little tractor-train for younger kids & corn maize. It is a simple farm & not over-rated commercialization with bounce-houses, etc. They have a hayride to take you to the apple picking & pumpkin patch (in October). I would agree with the earlier September poster that the orchards are very poor. It is ashame that they have let the trees/area get so bad. There are vines all over the trees & poison ivy in a 3' radius around the trees making it hard for the kids to pick the lower apples. If you know what poison ivy looks like then it's easy to avoid. The apple trees closer to the drop off location had the least favorable apples-- they were more green than red & had Sooty Blotch on them. This is the "black moldy stuff" the previous poster described. This is harmless & does not affect the taste of the fruit or affect how you prepare the apples (sauces/pies) or will it make you sick. You just have to scrub it off before eating. It is more of a testimony to the fact that the farm doesn't properly care for the orchards (pruning or a little easy pesticide) and also the spring/summer we've had in Southeast Ohio. The apples away from the farm, more toward the road, had really nice red apples & good size. There were plenty to pick. I think we paid $13 for 1/2 a bushel. The price for a fritter was about $2.25-- we didn't think that was too bad of a price as they are huge (size of 2 krispy kreme donughts). There are no public bathrooms, just port-a-potties & no running water/sinks for customers, but I think this is pretty typical for a small family farm. None of the strawberry farms or other orchards we've visited had a 'public restroom'. The place would be great if they just put some TLC into their orchards... pretty sad, but it's not a total waste of a trip. The staff is also friendly."
    A visitor writes on September 15, 2013: "This was the WORST orchard I have ever been to. This is how my visit went... Pull up to a happy crowd of people and a pleasant country atmosphere. So far, so good. Take the kiddos to verify out the tractor and neat farm animals. This place seems great so far! After the goat slobbers all over our hands, we seek a place to wash up... ummmm. Wait, where do we wash up? There is no running water that is accessible to customers here, evidently. The only thing available is nasty, unkempt port-a-potties. So we squirt some hand sanitizer on our hands and rinse the slobber off with our bottle of water we brought along. Did I mention that why we were feeding the animals, a donkey bit part of a small child's fingernail off? The poor baby was bleeding and sobbing! Anyway, back on track. We were there to pick some apples. Heading back to the orchard, we watched as others came back with their pecks of, um, brown apples? After talking to the cashier at the U-pick orchard, who said the apples had, in fact, been picked over, we decided that we would give it a try anyway. After all, the kids wanted to pick. Sigh... I wish I had trusted my instincts here. The apples had black and white moldy looking stuff all over them, and were covered in blight spots. In order to even get the apples, you had to walk through weeds. WORST KEPT ORCHARD I HAVE EVER SEEN! Why don't they cut these weeds down? These weeds that look like... wait, is that? Yes, it is! POISON IVY!!! EVERYWHERE! Not, oh, watch out, a patch of poison ivy... more like... where ISN'T there poison ivy? And, yep, we were all in it. Including a baby. Family place? I think NOT! Anyway... needless to say, I am peeved, and we are outta here! We skipped buying the apples. To appease the kiddos, we went in for apple fritters and some fresh fruit. Long story short, the prices are insane! And... even after asking, they would offer no place to rinse our fruit that we overpaid for. Evidently... there must NOT be any running water at this place at all? UGH! I am normally all about local family run places. This time though, I feel deceived. This is NOT a place for families! Especially not the U-pick part!!! Visit at your own risk!"
    Comments from a visitor on August 17, 2010: "This is the worst maintained apple farm I have ever had the misfortune to visit. I am used to well maintained orchards with a good product and a well organized structure. This farm is not maintained at all, the weeds and vines are so great that some of the orchard has been let go completely. You can go pick in a designated area where the apples had brown blight spots all over them. You could not pick if there weren't any pickers because those were in limited supply and you had to wait for people to walk out of the orchard. They had less than a doz. available. The area where one could pick was ropped off and off in the distance you could see the rest of the orchard which had better fruit and seemed to be somewhat better maintained. The vines and weeds were more prolific then the fruit. I would not recommend this location under any condition. Not worth the drive and people who think this is a great place have never been elsewhere. I would drive 8 hrs. to pick at a much better location then do this one again! Save your money!"
