Find a local pick your own farm here!

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 "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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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 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 in-laws!"
