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as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -

Comments from a visitor on
April 18, 2011: "While they had REALLY good apples, and the
gentleman who was riding around in his tractor was very helpful
in locating the best apples, the lady who had rung us up for the
160 lbs. of apples we picked and half gallon honey we bought
couldnOpen: 't have been more rude to us. Considering we were
picking apples with 5 elderly men and women and 4 kids, we were
moving as fast as we could go. I have no idea if this woman owns
the farm, but we will try it one more time and give them the
benefit of the doubt. Maybe she was having a bad day? No matter.
The apples are very good and we never mind blemishes as long as
they are on a non-sprayed apple and kissed by genuine sunshine!
The honey was good. Pure because there was a honeybee floating
in the top! Love it! Wish they would have allowed me to bottle
my own though as the opening of their 1/2 gal. jar is way too
small. All in all, a fun trip for the kids and visiting
