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of copycat websites; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us one time, so theirs is usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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!  

What's in season in July 2016, and other timely information:

Notes for July 2016: Strawberries have a very brief season; and they start in early April in the South, May in most of the US, and early June in the North - don't miss them! And blueberries and blackberries are ready NOW in most areas; tomatoes and corn will be starting soon: See your state's crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops. And see our guide to local fruit and vegetable festivals, such as strawberry festivals and blueberry festivals. Cold weather crops, like spinach, some lettuces, peas, kale, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, cauliflower, leeks and early onions being harvested in all but the coldest regions. Many farms and markets still have fresh winter squash, stored from last Autumn.

You may noticed the new appearance to the website! Simpler, cleaner and mobile-friendly! I'm rolling it out, page by page over the next 2 months. Everything is still here; you can access it 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 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."

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."
    Comments from a visitor on May 01, 2011:
    (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."

    "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. "

    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! "
