Once upon a time, farmland spread across Florida, as far as the eye can see. Things may be different nowadays, but there are plenty of u-pick farms near Orlando. Go hyperlocal by visiting u-pick farms in Central Florida to pick your own strawberries, citrus, blueberries, flowers, and other produce.
These local farmers welcome guests for an authentic Florida farm experience. Finish off your satisfying day date by making homemade jam, pie, or sangria with the fruits of your labor.
Tip: Take note of what season each fruit ripens, and note that hours of operation and availability can change.
Wear sun protection and closed-toed shoes for tromping around in the Florida scrub and bring a bottle of water.
