Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Western Australia? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Western Australia,
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as well as some 20-somethings trying to make a quick buck), so theirs are always out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly.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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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 November 2018, and
other timely information:
Notes for November 2018:Spring is here! Strawberries and
other berries are coming in! See your
crop availability calendar for more specific dates of upcoming crops.
And see our guide to local
vegetable festivals, such as
corn, and more!
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; such as
home canning and freezing directions. You can access it from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search.

Comments from a visitor on October 24, 2011: "Hi there, I saw your website when
looking for somewhere to take my 3 year old daughter strawberry
picking in Perth, Western Australia. I used to love berry picking as a
child and hoped my daughter and I could have some fun sharing this
wonderful experience. The only farm I could find in Perth was
Strawberry Fields on Wanneroo Road, so this morning we travelled over
an hour to get there only to find the tearooms closed, extremely
grumpy and unwelcoming service and terrible facilities. I must have
been told about the 'rules' three or four times and was made to feel
quite uncomfortable about being there with a child. I would NOT be
recommending this farm to anyone as they clearly do not want the
'pick-your-own' business. This is a shame as there are hardly any
places in Perth to go and PYO anymore. Anyway, hope this feedback
helps - thanks for the website!

For a map, click here. We are open April, May, June, July. Our
hours are: All day and everyday throughout the season, depending on
availability Payment: We have both pickling (table) and oil varieties
of olives: California Queen (UC13A6), Frantoio, Hardy's Mammoth,
Kalamata, Manzanillo, New Norcia Mission, Paragon, and Verdale. We
will supply all the harvesting equipment you need and we have our own
Italian Pieralisi olive oil press. For oil varieties of olive the cost
of pressing the olives is included the the price and we will press
them for you straight after they are picked so you can take home your
own, fresh, new season extra virgin olive oil, (bring your own clean
containers or we can supply them). For olive oil you must harvest a
minimum of 50kg of fruit as our press cannot deal with anything less.
As a guide, 50kg of olives should yield 9 or 10 litres of oil on
average. For pickling (table) varieties of olives we will give you
instructions on how to pickle and flavour your olives at home. We can
also provide purpose-made pickling containers. Cost: $2.50 (Australian
dollars) per kg for both pickling and oil varieties. This includes
pressing (for oil varieties) and the use of our harvesting equipment,
(mats, rakes, baskets, etc). The cost may change according to seasonal
variations, but will be confirmed when you make a booking. Bookings
are essential to guarantee the availability of fruit and also the
press, as this is a working farm! Our olives groves are conveniently
located around the oil press and we are a five minute drive from the
restaurants and attractions of the historic town of York. Why not make
a day or weekend of it?
