Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Alaska? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Alaska,
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. If you find anything outdated or
inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
New! Pricing information - We now have a pricing guide to help you know what
the typical prices are for each crop. Let me know when you see price changes! In 2022, you can save money by picking your own and canning your own, but brace
yourself for steep price increases, which are affecting EVERYTHING! For quality, taste, nutrition and value, you still can't beat most PYO farms. If need need
large quantities for canning, ask if they have "seconds"
If you are having a hard time
finding canning lids, I've used these, and they're a great price & ship in 2 days.
New! Road tripping and camping is a great way to have a fun, safe and inexpensive
family trip. The national and state parks and monuments are open, and campgrounds usually cost between $10 and $40 per night. September to November is the best
camping weather. See our new website Road Tripping and Camping.com for tips, tricks,
guides, checklists and info about parks, monuments and other places to visit.
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!

berries here in late summer. I am originally from Atlanta, Georgia, and grew
up picking blackberries every summer; I missed that; thank goodness for this

A visitor writes on July 27, 2014: "I stopped
going to Pyrah's several years ago when I encountered a sign saying we
could not go anywhere near a specific area because it had just been
sprayed with pesticides. I recently emailed them to see if they had
stopped using the pesticides, but they never responded. I was finally
able to get someone to answer the phone after several calls. The girl
I spoke to said "no we are not organic and yes we do use pesticides".
I just don't believe the chemicals and pesticides somehow miraculously
disappear from fruits and vegetables when they hit your table. This is
a big concern to my family and we always do our best to buy organic
Comments from a visitor on November 17, 2009: "I've
been going there since I was a teen. My children have grown up knowing of
the delights of picking veggies at Pyrah's. The growing season is short up
here and I'm not much of a gardener but love the results of course. We
highly recommend the experience. You can make a day of it. Combine it with a
trip to the State Fair or visit the Reindeer Farm up the road too too. Have
fun I know we do."
Comments from a visitor on July 02, 2016: I wanted to let you know about the wonderful
people I spoke to at Pyrah's. I didn't even know we had farms like this up
