Summer 2019 Guide to “You Pick” Farms & Orchards

Picking your own fruit can be a fun activity for all ages during the hot months of an Oklahoma summer! Pack up some water and lunches and support some Oklahoma businesses while picking your own homegrown fruit! 

Agape House Berry Farm

Currently open for strawberry season, and with blackberries coming soon! My family and I personally visited this farm 2 years ago and had a blast. My 2-year-old son loved filling up his bag (and his mouth) with berries. When we got home, we made blackberry pie! It was so fun to personally pick out our own fruit and make something delicious with it! I do recommend checking their Facebook page before driving out, though-they occasionally have to close unexpectedly due to weather or low fruit supply. 

Their address is:
10912 S. Czech Hall Road
Mustang, OK

Buffalo Creek Berry Farm

Currently open for strawberry picking! Hours differ depending on the day, but they post daily updates on their Facebook page. In addition to strawberries, you can pick other in-season produce. Everything needed to pick is provided by the farm. Located in Mustang, this is a quick drive from the OKC area!

Their address is:
9211 Sloan Road
Mustang, OK

Conscious Community Co-op

This Co-op was started just this year by the owners of Providence Farms in North Edmond. What started as a small fruit and vegetable stand has now expanded to a community farmers market. While not technically a “you pick” orchard, this is a great option if you live in Edmond and want to stay close to home, while still supporting local businesses. Located near Coltrane and Waterloo, Conscious Community is a Farmers Market that offers produce from multiple farms in Oklahoma. They have teamed up with other farms in Oklahoma who also practice chemical-free gardening, and everything will be offered at a one-stop shop that features local farms, baked goods, gardening supplies like plants and seeds, bulk honey and maple syrup. They also plan to have family-oriented events and workshops throughout the summer. You can check out their Facebook page for updates on their hours and what activities they will be offering. 

Their address is:
2900 East Waterloo Road
Edmond, OK

Faithful Farms Peach Orchard

While not open at the time of publication, the owner of Faithful Farms is hopeful for a successful peach season this year. Check out their Facebook page for updates on when this farm will be open for business! 

Their address is:
311 Twin Bridges Road
Ardmore, OK

The Farm on Fishmarket

Currently open for strawberry picking! In addition to strawberries, they will also have blackberries, as well as most seasonal vegetables and free-range eggs throughout the summer. For those interested in organic produce, The Farm is not certified organic, but they do use many organic practices! Hours through July are Tuesdays and Thursdays, 8-2, Saturdays 8-5, and Sundays 1-5. You can also find their produce at the Conscious Community Co-Op, mentioned earlier in this post. 

Visit their Facebook page and website for updates.

Sorghum Mill Christmas Tree and Blackberry Farm
