Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Knoxville Area of Tennessee? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Knoxville Area of 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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!

Comments from a visitor on July 27, 2010:
"Feedback on the Fruit & Berry Patch in Knoxville, TN: My family and I loved
our visit to the Fruit & Berry Patch. The Blackberries were huge and
delicious and the blueberries were great also. I can't wait to go back for
corn too. The people working there were extremely friendly and the fruit
slushes they sell were incredible. Feedback on Rouster's in Clermont County,
OH: I grew up in this area and make it a point to stop at Rouster's when I
go back to visit family. I haven't picked anything there but the Apple House
is such a neat place and their apple cider is the absolute best that I have
ever had. It's worth the drive from Tennessee to buy a few gallons."

Comments from a visitor on July 08, 2008: "This farm was fantastic!
The blackberries were huge and sweet and the people running the farm
were friendly. The only issue is that the directions from the
internet were wrong. You do not turn at traffic light 10 in Pigeon
Forge, you turn at the romyerad after light 10, Caney Creek Road. Also
the farm is not well marked, there are no u-pick signs until you get
to the farm. It is about 2 miles out Caney Creek Road. My family and
I highly suggest visiting, but call first to make sure you're headed
in the right direction. "
Comments from a visitor on July 19, 2008: "They have put up many
signs and it is easy to find now. The people were great and the crop
is wonderful. Berries were big and sweet! Would like to have seen
the grass shorter to better spot snakes. Other than that we spent
about an hour there and got five pounds of the best berries I have
seen this year! "
