Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Vermont? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Vermont, sorted by county. Farms offering 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?"). If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. And if you are looking for a local farm stand, roadside stand, farm market or local farmer's market, see our new website, dedicated to those! See your state's crop availability calendar for specific dates of upcoming crops.
If you know of any I missed and want to add a farm, click here! I'm making updates for 2018 as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!
Notes for July 2019: Summer is here and that means Strawberries and cherries are going strong in the north (both are finished in the South). Blueberries, raspberries, blackberries, figs and peaches are here (in mid-May to mid July in the South, and late June, July and August in the North). Tomatoes, corn and other vegetables will follow, too. Check your area's specific crop calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.
See these pages to find a local Strawberry Festival, Peach festival or a Blueberry festival. We have a guide to peach varieties here. Also recipes, canning and freezing directions for strawberries, blueberries, peaches, tomatoes, corn etc.
See our comprehensive list of 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 Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!
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.
