Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Southeastern Virginia, Including Richmond, Virginia Beach, Etc.?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Southeastern Virginia, Including Richmond, Virginia Beach, 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 "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operating in Russia and China, as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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   I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

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

See our comprehensive list of easy home canning, jam and jelly making, preserving, drying and freezing directions.

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 form 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  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

Health insurance: Open enrollment is almost here.  You may have heard  that health sharing plans, like Liberty and Medi-Share are less than half the cost of ObamaCare plans. We have a complete, simple comparison of the 6 major health sharing plans here.

THEY WERE EXCELLENT!!! Friendly, great customer service. The berries are giant..bigger than the size of golf balls. On the tractor ride they tell you a little about the farm's history. It is family owned. There is an employee that stays in the field and comes by to "check" on you. Once back at the store, they bring you carts to take the berries to the counter. The plants are on top of plastic so they are not really dirty. My husband and I picked over 30 lbs in 30 minutes. Easy picking! Thanks for this site!!! Looking forward to going there for peaches soon."
    Comments from a visitor on May 02, 2010: "We visited Woods Orchard on May 1, 2010 to for the u-pick strawberries. They take you to the field on a hay ride, a short distance for a $2.00 per adult charge. The berries are $2.00 a lb but you use and keep their flats. The berries are big, juicy and smell delicious! The fields are beautiful and the plants are on plastic with no weeds, the berries are very, very easy to pick. We picked 18 lbs in about a half an hour. They said they would probably have berries for about 5-6 more weeks. "

    "July 2013 - Went twice during blueberry season and was amazed at how many blueberries there were. It was a long drive, but beautiful and well worth it! Abundant blueberries for $2/lb. No crowds to deal with and had no encounters with wasps, etc. Already planning to go again next year! (James City, VA)"
    A visitor writes on July 03, 2013:
    "Me and my two young kids had a great experience today at bush neck! David was very nice and the fruit was beautiful. We picked and smacked on blueberries and peaches and enjoyed the singing birds and georgeous property! It was a long drive out there but well worth the trip! We will definitely be back :-)"

    (positive) "My 11yr old daughter and I went to Bush Neck Farms in Williamsburg last year. We had a great time and was pleasantly surprised to find the owner was her retired elementary school principal. The owners were very nice and accommodating. The peaches were in abundance and sweet. I believe they have only white peaches. The peaches & blueberries were easy to pick in well maintained groves. The blueberries were at the end of their season, but we still found plenty to pick. Will definitely go back again."

    (positive) "We have been going to Bush Neck Farms several times a summer for 8 years. The owners are wonderful- they have watched our children grow up and care about our family. They love what they do and how they do it. The location is stunningly beautiful and the peaches and blueberries are amazing. By far our favorite picking location! "
    Comments from a visitor on July 13, 2010:
    (positive) "I visit Bush Neck Farm with my family every year. We always enjoy the blueberries, apples, and peaches. The prices are reasonable, not outrageous, and the owners- while they don't always seem bubbly or excited to see you- are good people. The gentleman that owns the farm and spends most of the summer out in the heat has always been patient and pleasant when I have been there. I hope that future visitors are not so quick to judge. "
    Comments from a visitor on July 11, 2010:
    "The farm is a half-hour drive from Rte.60. I note that one former visitor used the term "crumudgeonly"(sic)to describe the owners of this farm. I think the actual term should be "curmudgeonly." I would use the simple term "grouches." Be forewarned: They only accept cash AND only checks from James City County, Williamsburg, Poquoson and Yorktown!? They were skeptical about allowing use of our own picking containers as well. Needless to say, we moved on without their berries. There are friendlier farms in the surrounding counties."

    Comments from a visitor on May 10, 2009:
    "I have been going to Henleys for 20 years and it is a family run farm and they are all very friendly and caring and if you ever get the opportunity to meet any of them you will know what I mean especially the older Mrs. Henley very sweet old lady just like her husband not saying that Stormy isnt sweet but Mrs Henley has a few years on her.LOL. Make sure you go all the way down to the farm and not just to the farm stand Not saying the farm stand isnt good but the extra mile is well worth the trip for the harvest. All year long if they have a growing season for something they have it growing. Hours are always subject to change to call first.. They take most form of payment including credit cards. They have portajohns for those emergency stops. In the fall they have a hayride to the pumpkin patch and on mother's day they have hanging flowers at reasonable prices for gifts. You can also buy some bedding plants or veggie plants for your own garden. "

Must call for an appointment, as the farm's other businesses include raising show pigs for 4H-ers and sweet corn. The pecan orchard is behind the 3169 house in a fenced area.

Pecans were $3 a pound, which is quite reasonable if you check the store price for pecans in shell. (UPDATED: May 21, 2017, JBS)
    A visitor writes on November 19, 2014: "Mrs. Horsley called back promptly and was very gracious. We set up a time in the afternoon, and when I got there two other people were picking pecans. They are absolutely delicious and flawless and quite reasonably priced. Mrs. Horsley was very kind to me even though her whole family are Hokies and I am a Wahoo. This is a small part of their very large operation. It is great that they make their pecans available to us. We're planning on some pie for Thanksgiving! "
