Charlotte U-Pick Farms. Where & When to Pick Your Own Fruits & Veggies Near Here.

U-Pick produce is an annual favorite to support local, eat healthy, and get outside. Fortunately, many farms have lots of wide-open space to stay well distant from other pickers, and several farms have accommodations in place such as appointment-only picking and limited capacity for safe picking. Get ready to enjoy lots of fresh air and safe fun with your family at our favorite U-Pick destinations!

With changing regulations and recommendations, please call before you go to ensure availability and accessibility. In addition to the issues surrounding COVID-19, sometimes weather conditions change the availability of the crops.

Also, be sure to ask whether or not containers are provided. If you need to bring your own, bring a cooler or something similar.
