U-Pick Farms

Some farms allow visitors to hand-pick their own fresh fruits and vegetables. This form of direct marketing helps farmers save on labor and shipping costs while offering consumers the freshest produce at lower prices. Some of the more popular U-pick crops in Florida include blueberries, strawberries, grapes, peaches, citrus, sweet corn, and tomatoes. But there are also opportunities to pick more unusual items, everything from persimmons and chestnuts to star fruit and avocados.

A trip to a local U-pick farm makes a fun family outing. You can enjoy fresh air and sunshine while choosing the best quality fruits and vegetables at the peak of ripeness. There are lots of benefits to picking your own. You’re reconnecting with nature, supporting your local economy, and getting to know your local farmers. A visit to a U-pick farm is a great learning opportunity for kids. They experience firsthand where their food comes from and how it grows; and studies show they’ll be more likely to eat their fruits and vegetables if they have a hand in the harvest. Dress comfortably for your trip to the farm. Bring a hat, sunscreen, and insect repellent, and wear sturdy shoes to protect your feet. Remember to bring your own containers for picking in case the farm does not provide them.

The Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services maintains a list of U-pick farms throughout Florida, but, because such farms are not required to register with the Department, the list is not a complete one. Being listed does not imply that a U-pick farm is endorsed, approved, or otherwise sanctioned by the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.

U-Pick Farm Locator

Listed below are U-pick farms throughout Florida. Most farms are open on a seasonal basis. Keep in mind that weather conditions and customer demand can determine the supply of fruits and vegetables. Before visiting a farm, call the farm directly to confirm availability, as well as days and hours of operation.
