Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Jackson and western-central Mississippi? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Jackson and western-central Mississippi,
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

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!

A visitor writes on June
20, 2018: "I went to check it out to see if it would be a good
place for my young grandchildren (4 and 6) and it is perfect for
them! No pesticides are used so we can eat right off the bushes.
Lots of high and low branches for all the age groups. The farmer
keeps the grass mowed so there are no fire ants or snakes to deal
with. Parking right next to where the bushes are so it isn't a long
trek to get to the picking zone. $2 quart, btw. I thought I saw
something saying $5 quart online but the reality is much more
affordable. The blueberries are ready by June 2 said the farmer and
by the end of the month are pretty well done. I'll take pics of the
Muscadine picking when I head over there mid-August and let you know
what I think about the vines. Thank you so much for your website!!!
