Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Fayette, Pickaway and Ross counties in central Ohio? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Fayette, Pickaway and Ross counties in central 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. If you find anything outdated or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!

What's in season in May 2020, and other timely information:
Notes for May 2020: Spring is here! Strawberry season
is going on right now in the South and warm areas of the west, and later in the
month up north. Cherries and Blueberries are
next, in June in most areas. Cool weather crops, like Rhubarb,
asparagus and greens should be available almost everywhere. Check your area's
copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for
COVID-19 Updates: Now, more than ever, going to a farm, being outside,
in the sterilizing sunshine, away from crowds, getting fresh, local produce, makes more sense than ever before! It's a fun, safe
and educational to pick some fresh strawberries, blueberries and more, then come back here to learn how to freeze, can, make jam, salsa and much more!
Of course, check with the farm before you go, both to check on crop availability
and make sure that they're open, given rapidly changing state requirements for
businesses and people due to Coronavirus.
And if you can't get to the
gym, or find any home equipment for sale;
see these pages about how to make your own home gym, weights, dumbbells and
racks for really cheap!
We also have
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.
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 or outdated, please
