Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in central Virginia, Charlottesville, etc.? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in central Virginia, Charlottesville, etc.,
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just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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 October 03, 2012: "A visit to this
farm on 9-30-12 was a only a 2/5 experience. First, the farm was very
crowded. We were instructed to stay in the designated areas to pick apples,
but the trees in the designated areas were picked clean of decent apples. I
let the kids pick a few fairly green apples for fun and $1.19/pound. The
nicer pre-picked apples are $1.39/pound. The cider donuts were meh and $1
each. When I was asked at the checkout how my experience was I was told that
I must be mistaken ... Um, really? I thought they would notice that no one
was buying more then a few apples at a time. No water fountain, but water
can be purchased. Overall, it felt very commercial, not like the family fun
experience we were expecting. Oh and just as a warning, in case you have a
child afraid of heights or an inexperienced driver, this farm is WAY up a
mountain. The road is partially paved, but there are no guardrails and a
significant, unforgiving drop if you make a mistake. The good things were
the views are gorgeous and lots of port-a-potties. Thanks, Blake! This
website is terrific! "

pumpkins! What a fabulous experience. We arrived on a Saturday morning,
there was a nice flow of folks but not too overwhelmingly populated. They
had a shop full of goodies (fresh cider, honey, handmade baskets etc), as
