The point behind PickYourOwn is that fresh is always better. We are the farming branch of the “buy local” movement.
The Lafayette area has been fortunate to have many different farms with a large variety of produce available for you to pick yourself at the farm where it is produced (what U-Pick means). Unfortunately for you, our customers, there has been little centralized information to help you find us, the farmers.
If you didn’t grow up on a farm or in a rural area, you also may not realize that local fruits and vegetables are only ripe at certain times during the summer. You may not know which month is the best time to pick the sweetest sweet corn or the ripest peaches. You may not even know what produce is available in the area and what will not grow well in our area.
My hope is that this blog post can be a reference point for those who want to visit one or several of these farms during the growing season. Please contact me if you notice that any of this info is incorrect or if I need to add farms to the list. If you enjoy picking your own at one of these farms, you’ll probably enjoy a visit to another one. Hopefully this will help you follow through on those plans.
For the most part, we love farm living and we look forward to your visit to our farm. We're sure the other growers feel the same. A visit to one of our farms often leads people to visit other farms and hopefully this blog will help facilitate that as well!
