There are few things more satisfying than gathering up your own fresh, organic produce to go home and make something delicious with. In Florida, tucked away u-pick farms are aplenty, allowing would-be pickers to pluck samples of iconic Florida citrus to take home with them. From vegetables to fruits and berries too, you can make the tastiest tarts, smoothies, and muffins after visiting these Florida u-pick farms.

The Sunshine State may be famous for its oranges, but there are tons of other natural goodies you can find fresh at Florida farms. Peaches, blueberries, strawberries, and other citrus fruits alongside tasty tubers and hearty veggies are yours for the picking — so grab your buckets, baskets, and knapsacks.

Some of the farms have other awesome attractions on-site to check out during your visit too, so you might want to set a whole day aside to really enjoy it all.

Grab your main squeeze and make it an affordable day date to remember. Plus, when you visit u-pick farms, you’re supporting local businesses and farmers — a total win for the community!

Different varieties of fruits and veggies will be harvestable each season, so check back every few months. You can also call ahead of time or check up on each farm’s social media sites to be sure they’re open and loaded with produce.
