Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northern Virginia?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northern 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. 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operating in Russia and China, as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly I make updates daily (each farm as changes are reported, or I find it).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!

And if you know of any 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   I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

What's in season in May 2018, and other timely information:

Blueberries. Are next, about a month later. Of course, cool weather crops, like Rhubarb, asparagus and greens should be available almost everywhere.

    "I just visited this lovely farm with my 2 sons for some peaches today. This was a little further up the road than other PYOs (pick your own) in the area but well worth the drive. We have visited all the others in the area and this has been the favorite spot for peaches. We received a friendly welcome and the prices were quite good for such high quality fruit! The peaches were on shorter trees so no need to worry about finding a picker. The orchard was well maintained and the fruit was plentiful. I will definitely be visiting again in the fall! "

    I just picked cherries today, and they are perfectly ripe, so if you want pie and canning cherries (the variety is Montmorency), get there in the next day or two! Blake

    Comments from a visitor on November 03, 2010: "We've been CSA members at this farm for 3 years. We are moving and are very sad we won't be able to visit and get our produce from here in the future. We've driven one hour each way once a week because we love it so much. There is so much to do that you can make each visit a day trip and most of the time the u-pick options are great. Like any farm, there are times when weather conditions affect the crops negatively and b/c of that you don't always get as much produce as you may have expected, but for the most part we've always been happy with the CSA and u-pick. My boys (now 7 and 4.5) and I have learned a lot through the farmers and picking our own veggies and fruit. The "playarea" has several slides, rope swings, HUGE "bouncy", corn bin, roller racers, mini gulf course, and more. They seem to add more each year. One negative, since it's gotten so popular the "special" weekends are normally really packed. We enjoyed the Easter Egg hunt there in 2009, but this last year 2010 it was publisized and was way to busy to be enjoyable. "
