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, that 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 [email protected]. 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 status update for 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 makes a great photo op!

  • Status: Open Sept. 23 – Oct 31: Johnson Farms is a real farm in the country, but very close to your home. You pay one admission and only pay extra for anything you harvest, snack on, or seasonal items in the retail store. Hurry in for the best selection of our 25,000 farm-grown mums; they sell out quickly. (Retail store requires no admission charge.). After a wagon ride out to the field, your children will meander through the 40-acre pumpkin patch and will thrill at the sight of their perfect pumpkin or choose from 7 varieties of apples from our 5000-tree apple orchard! Once back from your wagon ride, take pictures near the Giant Sunflower and Zinnia field and pick some fall veggies!

Our playgrounds are geared towards kids age 3-12, and are included in the admission:

  • 2 Corn Pits
  • Barnyard Arcade with Skeeball, Basketball, and Duck Races

  • In addition, on the weekend Farmer Tom’s Barrel Train is included for small kids 2 and up ( unless mom or dad can fit in the barrel) and runs Saturday and Sunday from 10 am to 5 pm.
  • Weekend pig races begin at 11 am and run every two hours** this is a short trip to the Dinosaur Chomper and Pumpkin Cannon which also run just on weekends, (which is why the weekday admission is discounted).
  • All beef hot dogs, nachos, Apple Cider Slushies, and, of course, our Pumpkin Spice Donuts are freshly made all day, every day, and can be found in our retail store as well.

This is a 140-acre working farm, so come dressed for outdoor fun and bring your fall appetite! Please see FAQs on the website before visiting.)
