Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northern Ireland? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northern Ireland,
sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name
. The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function)
If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. Beware of copycat websites (such as pickyourown.farm) ; they just co[pied my website a few years ago, and do not update their information as I do, so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm,
and I make updates weekly (and whenever I hear from a farm or visitor with new info). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the
information, please let me know! There are affiliate links on this page. Read our disclosure policy to learn more.

firstname.lastname@example.org. Finlay’s Place is a family run business
established in 2011* selling fresh local produce including potatoes,
eggs and vegetables. After 32 years away in Warwickshire, Finlay has
returned to the house where he was born - a solid Georgian farmhouse
with adjoining barns which his father James bought in the early
50s.Given the location of this property on a main road, it seemed
eminently sensible to start selling our produce directly to the public.

miles.Situated on the A22 just a stone’s throw from Balloo, Killinchy,
Co. Down, N. Ireland, we have much to offer the discerning gardener and
cook. We offer homegrown strawberries, raspberries, new potatoes and
local seasonal vegetables in a rustic setting and welcoming atmosphere.
Our Pick Your Own (PYO) is proving extremely popular among the locals in
Co. Down. We also grow a good range of foliage, alpines, bedding plants
and shrubs in our Nursery as well as ready- planted hanging baskets and
planters to bring instant colour to your garden. We have the following
fruit available for picking starting from the end of June and throughout
the summer monthsBlackcurrants - Ebony variety. The sweetest
blackcurrant ever! This outstanding dessert variety is so exceptionally
sweet that it can be eaten straight from the bush when fully ripe.
Raspberries - Glen Ample variety. A high yielding mid-season variety
that produces large berries with good flavour and colour. Gooseberries -
Invicta variety. A vigorous, spreading bush with large, pale green
berries which are good for both culinary and dessert use.Redcurrants -
Jonkheer van Tets variety. Bright coloured, redcurrants have a healthy
amount of important antioxidants, known as anthocyanins.
