Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in the Eastern Shore of Virginia?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in the Eastern Shore of Virginia, 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. If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!

New! Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what the typical prices are for each crop.

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   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

What's in season in March 2020, and other timely information:

Notes for March 2020: Spring is here! Strawberry season started in February in Florida, Texas, southern California; then starts in March along the Gulf coast, April in the Deep South and west coast, May through much of the country, and June in northern areas. Blueberries are next, about a month later. Of course, cool weather crops, like Rhubarb, asparagus and greens should be available almost everywhere. Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

Now, more than ever, going to a farm, being outside, away from crowds, getting fresh, local produce, makes more sense than ever before! It's a fun, safe and educational to pick some fresh strawberries, blueberries and more, then come back here to learn how to freeze, can, make jam, salsa and much more! Of course, check with the farm before you go, both to check on crop availability and make sure that they're open, given rapidly changing state requirements for businesses and people due to Coronavirus.

It's likely that many Easter Egg Hunts will be cancelled, but check on our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt!

Children's Consignment Sales occur in both the Spring and Fall  See our companion website to find a local community or church kid's consignment sale!

See these pages to find a local Strawberry Festival, or a Cherry or cherry blossom festival or a Blueberry festival.

We also have easy home canning, jam and jelly making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information from here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

    A visitor writes on May 29, 2016: "Both Mason's Farm and the Picketts Harbor farm are wonderful. I have been to both since returning to the shore 2003. The only thing I wish they offered were some time available for Sunday hours, even if it's only a window of 4 hours. The weekday and Saturday hours just don\'t work for everyone. However the service and vegetables/fruit coming from both of these places will lead you to never want to buy either in a supermarket ever. Thank you !!!"
