Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northern Georgia? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northern Georgia, 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 If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!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! As inflation remains high, see this page for cost-saving measures for getting fruit and vegetables and home canning.
 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 for tips, tricks, guides, checklists and info about parks, monuments and other places to visit.

New! We just went live with our latest website, - As they name implies, you can find a fun factory tour, including chocolate, automobiles, historical forts and sites, famous buildings, Active Federal facilities even fun geology: like fossils and volcanic areas

Note: Beware the copycat websites like the one that stole our name and uses .farm extension: they copied my work and do NOT even update the info! I make updates EVERY day. They use tech tricks to get higher rankings, but have many more inaccuracies and out-dated info. Obviously, I cannot check every farm every day, but I do check as many as I can every day, and respond to all requests.  They don't. Don't support the scammers!

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 this year 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 April 2024, and other timely information:

Strawberry season is here.  It started in February in Florida, Texas, southern California and a few other areas of the Deep South; then March along the Gulf coast, April in the Deep South and west coast, May through much of the country, and June in northern areas. Blueberries are next, about a month later. Of course, cool weather crops, like Rhubarb, asparagus and greens should be available almost everywhere. Check your area's copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

    Comments from a visitor on July 02, 2016: "The Blake Collins Blueberry Farm in Fannin County, GA is absolutely amazing!!!! No pesticides & my kids had an incredible blast! Even my 1 year old was picking these gorgeous yummy blueberries that just popped in your mouth! And the owners were the nicest, cutest couple ever! Cannot recommend more!!! If you try their blueberries, you will never want to buy store-bought again!!!"
    Comments from a visitor on September 09, 2008: "We visited the Collins this weekend and were highly impressed! They are so sweet! The blueberries are wonderful and the Collins let you eat as much as you like while you pick. Our 3 year old and 22 month old loved it! Only $5 for a gallon! Bring your own container to take them home. Also make sure you call before you go. They do not have set hours. The Collin's place is also very close to Mercier Orchards. Mercier Orchards is fantastic and all the people are very kind. You choose which size bag you want for apple picking ($8 for a small bag and $10 for a larger bag). They take you on a tractor ride into the orchard and drop you off. A guide tells you which apples are good for picking and each row of apples has a sign telling you what they are. Mercier Orchards lets you eat as many apples as you want while you pick. If you have never had a certain kind of apple before they say just try it and if you don't like it throw it on the ground and move on. We had a blast! The store is great fun too. You can look through glass and watch how they clean and package the apples. This place is a must see! "

    Comments from a visitor on May 15, 2010: "We went to this orchard to pick-your-own strawberries yesterday (5/14/10)and I cannot say enough about how nice they were... the ladies at the front, the people on the tractor (to and from) and TJ who was out in the field answering everyone's questions. We found it very interesting and educational about what they told us about the farm, it's history and how it's operated. We do not have children, but many others out there did and they seemed to be VERY children friendly. They did allow you to eat strawberries in the field, the only rule given was "Please put at least one berry in the bucket for each one that you eat!" LOL! They still had lots of strawberries ready and you could see more ALMOST ready for picking. But they were being picked relatively quickly so no telling how long they will have more... there were lots of picking customers coming and going. We had such a wonderful experience we are already planning our next trip for their next crop... Cherries :)!"

The strawberries were excellent - there are two large fields for picking your own, and they rotate so there are fresh berries to pick. The quality of the fruit was very good, as I bought some pre-picked as well as what we picked. The kids loved the homemade strawberry ice cream, and the train was an added bonus.

    Comments from a visitor on July 30, 2010: "We visited this blueberry farm today and had lots of FUN! Mom and I turned into kids again while picking berries from the 6-8 foot tall blueberry bushes at Roland's. There is a table to borrow buckets from and a "pay here jar" at the entrance to the main blueberry field. As you pick the 1/2 cm to 2cm fruit here you can hear the Chattahoochee River and wildlife all around. Children can easily play hide and seek here as well as pick berries. If you go late in the day (we were there at 9am) they may run out of buckets to use. If you don't know what poison ivy looks like BE CAREFUL because it does grow under some of the huge blueberry bushes. If you don't want to bend over for berries there are PLENTY 4ft off the ground and higher. Even kids will find plenty of berries they can pick. GREAT PLACE!"

    Comments from a visitor on May 22, 2011: "Dahlonega Vegetable Farm Lumpkin County May 2011 Sunday we decided to go strawberry picking and found several ads on the internet for Dahlonega Vegetable Farm. I had read the info on your site so I was sure to call the number they provided to make sure they were open before we left. It was a little difficult to find and after turning around twice we finally came upon it. When we walked in the store the bins were barely filled with strawberries much less any other vegetables. I told the lady at the counter that we wanted to pick our own and she said they were not allowing people to pick today. I countered with but your phone line says that you are "open" today. She replied that the phone line was just for the store and maybe I should come back another day, possibly Wednesday but you never know. I was very irritated because we had come along way. I decided to buy some of their pre-picked berries even though they didn't look that great. To my dismay, once I got them home, most of the ones on the bottom of the gallon bucket I bought were rotten. I won't be back. They are not very customer friendly and it wasn't worth the trip. "
    Comments from a visitor on May 25, 2010: "We have been picking strawberries here for the past 5 years as a nice Spring tradition. We drive 35 miles to get there and normally it is worth it. Today we arrived about noon and they advised us that they had already picked that morning (which they always do) but didn't want anyone picking to let more berries ripen. Their recorded message says they are open for business and the farm hours but nothing about restricted pick-your-own berries. I complained about this never being a problem before, our long trip and no warning on their recording about any restrictions. The girl said she would tell the owner. This is our last visit to this farm with this kind of treatment of customers."
    Comments from a visitor on May 23, 2010: "We drove up to this farm and arrived around noon. The place was pretty empty of people and so we got to start picking without having to worry about waiting in line. They informed us that the Strawberry season started later do to our cold winter and they hope it lasts longer into the year. The plants were pretty empty by the time we arrived, but we were still able to pick about a gallon of berries between the two of us. They are not sure if they will have other veggies/fruits available for sale in the shop this year. Right now all they had was strawberries. They provide buckets to pick in and you can buy the bucket for $1. One bucket of BYO berries was $12. Checks and cash ONLY."
    Comments from a visitor on July 06, 2009: "This listing says to call first, but alas, there is just an answering machine...was there today (Monday, July 6th) at 4:30 pm and the place was closed...Fortunately I was already in the area so it was not a biggie...just very inconsiderate to not answer phones or have updated times on the answering machine. I also agree that the person talking on the answering machine is extremely difficult to understand. And if you go by the address listed, you will not drive far enough down the road...the mailbox is on the South side of the bridge and the market is just north of the bridge. "
    Comments from a visitor on July 03, 2009: "Very Disappointing. This farm listed many kinds of vegetables as well as blackberries, which we were looking for. We tried to call ahead more than once to see if the blackberries were ready, but NEVER got an answer, just a difficult-to-understand recording of a child's voice saying they were open and some of the things they had available. We decided to go anyway, called the morning we went, got the same indistinct voice mail saying they were open. We took the kids hoping for a fun morning of vegetable picking, only to be told when we got there that there was nothing left to pick in the fields, only produce in their market. And they Never had had blackberries in spite of their recently-updated listing on the web. We were very disappointed."
    Comments from a visitor on June 13, 2009: "We went yesterday (6/12/09) to this farm and they still have lots of Strawberries for picking. Beware that there are steep metal stairs that you have to go down to get to the strawberries. The people were friendly and the strawberries are delicious! We picked about 8 quarts of strawberries and it was $15. Our children were able to eat as they picked. The farm is maybe 10 minutes or less from downtown Dahlonega. Bring your own container to take the strawberries home. Also they have great vegetables and other fruits at good prices."
