Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Missouri? Scroll down this page and select your region of the state for a list of U-Pick farms in Missouri, 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.

What’s in season in January 2021, and other timely information:

Notes for January 2021: Crop growth is slowing down, except for Christmas tree farms and if you live in southern California, southern Texas, Florida or along the Gulf coast where citrus are ripe, and believe it or not, the blueberry and strawberry season in those areas is about to begin. See your state harvest calendar . This year, much of the country is still seeing mild weather, so lettuce, peas, broccoli, cabbage and other greens are thriving. And this is a good time to get a canner and learn how to preserve foods for the winter, like canning some applesauce, apple butter or jam, which make great gifts. As do your own homemade specialty liqueurs! How about homemade cranberry sauce or a pumpkin pie made from a real pumpkin for the holidays? 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. A fun winter activity is to make your own ice cream, even gelato, or low fat or low sugar ice cream – see this page. If you have any questions or suggestions, feel free to write me!

Easter will be April 4, 2021 – if you want to take your children to a free Easter egg hunt – see our companion website to find a local Easter Egg hunt !
