Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Alaska? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Alaska, 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 If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!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.

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.

New! We just went live with our latest website, FunFactoryTours.com - As they name implies, you can find a fun factory tour, including chocolate, automobiles, historical forts and sites, famous buildings, 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!

What's in season in July 2024, and other timely information:

Notes for July 2024: Spring is here! Strawberry season is here.  It started in February in Florida, Texas, southern California and a few other areas of the Deep South; then March along the Gulf coast, April in the Deep South and west coast, May through much of the country, and June in northern areas. Blueberries are next, about a month later. Of course, cool weather crops, like Rhubarb, asparagus and greens should be available almost everywhere. Check your area's crop calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.

Are carpenter bees boring holes into your house, shed or barn? There is a simple non-toxic solution!

NEW! Start your own tomato, pepper, squash and other vegetable plants from seed - It's easy and costs about 50 cents per plant.
Also see our Master list of tomato varieties,  with descriptions, details and links to ordering the seedss.

Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now.  They have all copied their information from here and usually do not ever update.  Since 2002, I've been updating the information every day but Christmas; so if you see anything wrong or outdated, please write me!

    A visitor writes on July 27, 2014: "I stopped going to Pyrah's several years ago when I encountered a sign saying we could not go anywhere near a specific area because it had just been sprayed with pesticides. I recently emailed them to see if they had stopped using the pesticides, but they never responded. I was finally able to get someone to answer the phone after several calls. The girl I spoke to said "no we are not organic and yes we do use pesticides". I just don't believe the chemicals and pesticides somehow miraculously disappear from fruits and vegetables when they hit your table. This is a big concern to my family and we always do our best to buy organic only."
    Comments from a visitor on November 17, 2009: "I've been going there since I was a teen. My children have grown up knowing of the delights of picking veggies at Pyrah's. The growing season is short up here and I'm not much of a gardener but love the results of course. We highly recommend the experience. You can make a day of it. Combine it with a trip to the State Fair or visit the Reindeer Farm up the road too too. Have fun I know we do."
    Comments from a visitor on July 02, 2016: I wanted to let you know about the wonderful people I spoke to at Pyrah's. I didn't even know we had farms like this up here. Pyrah's is a PYO, open Mon 9-5, Tues-Saturday from  9-9, closed Sundays. They offer field trips for kids, just call ahead to schedule... only $3 per child!
