Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in North-Central Tennessee? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in North-Central 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 "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as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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!

Comments from a visitor on May 08, 2010: "We love Kelley's Berry
Farm and make the drive over from Nashville every season. They are friendly
and make you feel very welcome. This is a true 'pick-your-own' which means
bring containers for carrying your berries home with you. They do have
plastic bags, but berries can be squished if you carry them home that way."

family visited the Amazing Acres of Fun on April 29,2012 to pick your own
strawberries and if you are looking for a WONDERFUL tasting strawberry and
wonderful people (as well as a great family outing) you really need to visit
the Amazing Acres of Fun!!!! We are new to TN and look forward to family
outings like this. Strawberries are all over the place (at least at the time
of this posting). Very reasonable on their pricing and great if you are
looking for a day out with the family picking your own. Make sure you bring
your camera for those Kodak moments! Good people running the place and they
are there to help! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!!!!!!!!"
