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. Summer is 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.
Berry 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 with blueberry smiles make a great photo op!
