Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Western Nevada ? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Western Nevada ,
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 If you find anything outdated or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.

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

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anything out-of-date, wrong or not working -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! This website is supported by purchases you make

Comments from a visitor on September 10, 2010: "We
have been going there the last two years for u-pick. They have red
raspberries in the fall (August, September), rhubarb, tomatoes, herbs and
they have even let us pick pickles. It sounds like most items can be
u-picked after they have got most of the crop. U-pick is 1/2 the cost stand
price. They are really nice there and we have never been dissatisfied with
any produce or baked goods we have bought from them. The corn maze and
Saturday evens in October are nice and fun for the whole family."
A visitor writes, February 21, 2008: They have a raspberry patch
you can pick your own that my family takes advantage of every year...it's
our tradition. A pumpkin Patch. A corn maze. A small animal petting place. A
fruit/vegetable stand. A small bakery. And other things. It's a really fun
place to go. They sell homemade jams/breads etc... It's locally owned and a
very friendly place. They have a large picnic area and you can reserve it
for baby, wedding showers...I believe they have had weddings there. Like I
said above they have a corn maze, small petting zoo and they provide hay
rides as well.
