Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northeastern Maine? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northeastern Maine,
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 If you find anything outdated or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!
Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what
the typical prices are for each crop.
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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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! This website is supported by purchases you make

Comments from a visitor on August 15, 2008: "This place is great! It's in
the middle of the wild blueberry barrens of Maine. I could have purchased
wild blueberries in a couple of dozen places on the way up from Mass. But it
was worth the drive to experience picking lowbush berries with a blueberry
rake. Ron the owner was awesome! He showed us how to use the rakes, and then
after we picked our boxes full, Ron brought our berries over to his berry
cleaning machine. Boy was that fun to watch! I have always liked lowbush
wild berries better than the cultivated highbush ones. Just make sure you
call or e-mail Ron before you go up there so he will be expecting you."
