Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Georgia? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Georgia, sorted by county. Farms offering 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?"). If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. And if you are looking for a local farm stand, roadside stand, farm market or local farmer's market, see our new website, dedicated to those! See your state's crop availability calendar for specific dates of upcoming crops. New! As inflation remains high, see this page for cost-saving measures for getting fruit and vegetables and home canning.
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

Notes for March 2024: Summer is almost over and that means apples are here (see this new page for Apple Orchards in your area!), and except in northern areas, peaches and blueberries are finished. Some crops continue until frost, like raspberries, blackberries, figs, corn and tomatoes. Check your area's specific crop calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for seasonal updates.
See these pages to find a local Apple festival, and other festivals. We have a extensive guide to apple varieties and a guide to peach varieties. Also recipes, canning and freezing directions for apples, tomatoes, corn blueberries, peaches, etc.
And don't forget CORN MAZES are open now - find a local maze here.
See our comprehensive list of easy home canning, jam and jelly making, preserving, drying and freezing directions. You can access recipes and other resources from the drop down menus at the top of the page or the site search. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me! It is easy to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream - see this page. Also note, there are many copycat website listing U-pick farms now. The worst is the one that stole our name but ends with .farm. (Yes, I've got lawyers on it) 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!

These two are NOT pick-your-own farms, they are homeowners with a couple of acres, so they have huge gardens and sell their home-grown tomatoes. I've had some of their tomatoes, and they are excellent! Both are very close to Gwinnett Place Mall (Costco, Sam's Club, etc.) Here's where to find them. Be sure to tell them where you heard about them!
- 4215 Old Norcross Road, NW, Duluth, GA, 30096 (at the intersection with West Liddell in Duluth / Norcross). His phone is 770-449-4839. Here's a Mapquest map to their stand. He has been charging $1.50 per pound for Better Boy tomatoes.
- 4895 Old Norcross Road NW, Duluth, GA 30096. Not far from the stand above, she is charging $1.25 per pound and is open almost every day except Sunday mornings. Here's a Mapquest map to her stand
Email me from Feedback if you'd like to recommend a home vegetable stand in your area! As long as it is truly a home stand, not a big commercial market stand, I'll add it! I'd just like to give the mom and pop (and children) who are selling their extra home grown veggies a boost!
