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;

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!

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!

add a farm, please let me know!

Comments from a visitor on July 08, 2010: (positive)"I picked blackberries on July 6, 2010 for the
first time ever - they are the most amazing blackberries! I had to look for
the really ripe ones but there were plenty to be found. It took me about an
hour to fill the field bucket- you pay by the bucket full not by weight and
they allow you to heap it as high as you can for $16.00. There were a ton of
yet to ripe berries so I will be going back again for sure. It seemed to me
that the berries have not been affected by the drought because they have a
nice watering system. The berries were incredibly JUCY. Nice perks are: you
can drive right up to the field, they have clean, real (not
porta-pot)bathrooms, and they sell other farm fresh produce as well. "
Comments from a visitor on July 07, 2010: (positive)
- "I have been Scott's twice recently and have to say I disagree with the
other two recent posters. First was during the strawberry festival, it was
too hot to stay long, but we did pick a 5qt bucket full, very easily. Most
recently we picked blackberries and raspberries on 6/27/10. I will agree
that there were not many raspberries, but there were LOTS of blackberries.
We picked three 5 qt buckets full. I don't know if the previous posters
misunderstood where to turn, as the fields can be confusing, but there were
5 rows of completely ripe blackberries and about 10 rows that had some ripe
and some not. "
Comments from a visitor on June 26, 2010:
(negative) - "I
noted that a upset visitor posted a response in June 2010. I am not normally
one to post such derogatory remarks but I am sorry to say that the previous
poster is fairly correct. We were told there was blackberries, raspberries,
and blueberries. When we went out, we were told to go to a particular field.
We arrived and found about 5 blueberry bushes and was able to pick about 1/2
cup of ripe blueberries. We did not see any blackberries. We did see about
35 raspberry bushes. While there were a lot of raspberries on the available
bushes, 95% were not ripe. When we checked out, we were told that the
berries should be ready in about 2 weeks. It is posted as being ready and we
too were told on the phone about the readiness of the berries. It was a huge
disappointment since we too drove about 40 minutes to get there. I would not
recommend visiting this farm. "
Comments from a visitor on June 19, 2010:
"WOW what a disappointment. I called before had for directions , . From my
Home it was 45 miles, Asked about the different kinds of berry that "were in
season NOW" I quoted, She explained a " bunch of blueberry bushes. raspberry
and black berry would be here soon..... Lies ,lies lies.. I got there only
12 blueberry bushes ( which is what I was going for) and NOT ONE BERRY ON
THE BUSH. So I picked not a berry and stopped by to ask why she lied to me
on the phone and to my face before I went out to the fields.. She said You
must have misunderstood me. B*** S***. Then she offered to sell me her
pre-picked berries at 3.99, a pint well I I explained I do not plan to buy
her pre-picked week old berries after spending 1.5 hours driveng and 1/2 a
tank of gas to a horrible lady. oh yes I did " A HORIBBILE LADY"
Another visitor writes in 2009: (positive)
