Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in The Roanoke Area and surrounding Western Virginia? Farms are open and safe! Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in The Roanoke Area and surrounding Western Virginia, 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 If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!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! Pricing information - We now have a pricing guide to help you know what the typical prices are for each crop. Let me know when you see price changes! In 2022, you can save money by picking your own and canning your own, but brace yourself for steep price increases, which are affecting EVERYTHING! For quality, taste, nutrition and value, you still can't beat most PYO farms. If need need large quantities for canning, ask if they have "seconds"
 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 for tips, tricks, guides, checklists and info about parks, monuments and other places to visit.

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   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!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 December 2022, and other timely information:

Notes for December 2022: Fall is here and that means apples are in full force but they will be gone fast (see this new page for Apple Orchards in your area!).  Yes, apple prices are up, like they are for everything else. 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. Click here for U.S. Apple Crop facts.

See these pages to find a local Apple festival, and other festivals. We have a guide to apple varieties and a guide to peach varieties. Also recipes, canning and freezing directions for apples, tomatoes, corn blueberries, peaches, etc.

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. 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!

    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: (negative) - "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) - "Pick your own price for 2009 is $1.80 quart or $9.00 for the 5 quart field bucket.
