Kansas City's U-Pick Farms
In Kansas City, we enjoy many “u-pick farms” across the metro area where you may pick blueberries, strawberries, apples, peaches, fresh vegetables and more. It's the season for delicious u-pick produce!
Please note, some farms from previous years are no longer in business or no longer offer u-pick. This list will get you started! If you know of a patch to add to the list, email Kristina@KCParent.com. This list may not be reprinted in print or online without permission.
Produce Picking Tips:
- Call ahead or check the farm's Facebook Page (linked in the title of each farm) to verify picking times, as they vary from farm to farm. This is a MUST!
- Remember comfortable shoes (you will be walking in fields) and wear sunscreen.
- Bring bottled water and pack a picnic if the farm allows.
- And, don’t forget your camera… children enjoying a day at the farm make a great photo op!

Status: *2019 UPDATE* Our patch was part of a family farm and we recently sold the piece the patch was on. Farmer Kyle didn’t want to not offer our amazing berries and family outing so this year so we still will have a u pick 🍓 patch. However, this year it is in Wellsville Kansas. Starting next year (2020) we will be back near our old location, KC MO. We have a few options of land and will still be within a few miles of our original awesome location. We plan to be open mid May and will continue to post updates. Please check back for more details soon! We are embracing the change and making do with what we have to work with, like farmers always have to do. We are very thankful for your support and look forward to seeing you soon! #bennysberrieskc #upickpatch
