Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in New Orleans area of Louisiana? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in New Orleans area of Louisiana, 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 If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!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.

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   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

    Comments from a visitor on June 02, 2012: "We went to visit this farm today and we had a wonderful time! This was the first time this farm has been open for the public to pick veggies. It was very nicely equipped with a large covered picnic area and restrooms. We were taken around the farm to pick our veggies. We picked squash, cherry tomatoes, green pepper, cucumbers, and creole tomatoes. At the end of our picking they had a really nice petting zoo. We were able to meet chickens, peacocks, calves, goats, sheep, donkeys, and rabbits. The kids had a great time!! It's a great place to bring the kids and pick a few veggies. The Liuzza family was truly wonderful. We can't wait to go back! Thank you for a great afternoon."
