Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Chattanooga and Southeast Tennessee?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Chattanooga and Southeast Tennessee, 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 "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm, and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the information, please let me know!

We don't use chemicals, pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, or harmful fertilizers. We are stewards of the land on which we grow and raise food, and we conserve, and in most cases, enhance the land on which we are fortunate enough to farm. We grow produce from organic seeds, never GMO seeds. Peaches, pears, apples, blackberries, blueberries, grapes grow naturally and abundantly around the farm. Behind our cattle, we raise Cornish Cross broiler chickens in movable shelters to protect them from predators while also limiting the time they spend in one pasture spot. The chickens move daily, providing the soil with just enough nitrogen to enhance soil conditions while offering the chickens a veritable smorgasbord of bugs and grasses to complement their organic feed. Unlike store bought chickens, our broilers are not raised in crowded, stressful, smelly chicken houses in which farmers have to wear masks to breathe and contamination suits to protect themselves. When you visit our farm, you won't find offensive smells, sights, or sounds. The moment you step out of your car at our farm to purchase a chicken, try our Spa Collection of handmade soaps and bath products, grab a basket of tomatoes, or to pick your own blackberries and raspberries, you'll find the same slice of heaven that we discovered the day we stepped out of our car to look at buying it. This is our gift to you: Healthy, quality food grown and raised in a little corner of the world that we keep peaceful and beautiful, far enough from the hustle and bustle of suburban and urban life for us to appreciate its wonder. And we think you will too. So come visit Dazi Acres Farm for naturally grown, farm fresh food. David and Suzanne Eltz. (UPDATED: May 12, 2014) (ADDED: June 06, 2013)
