Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Sussex?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Sussex, 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; they just copied my website a few years ago, and do not update their information as I do, so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly!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.
