U-Pick & Farm Tours

Including at least one farm tour or u-pick experience in your Central Florida vacation can truly enhance the trip and build memories that last a lifetime.

Plan A Trip

Polk County is a destination for visitors from all over the world who want to unplug, unwind and bask in the state’s natural agricultural backdrop, all while soaking in a little Florida sunshine. Offering a wide range of farm tours and u-pick opportunities, Polk County makes it is easy to plan a fun-filled vacation brimming with exploration and adventure suited for any age group.

Lakeland Food Tours  and Winter Haven Food Tours offer visitors a way to enjoy tastings from a smattering of popular local restaurants with the assistance of a local guide.

Farm Tour Experiences

You’ll have an “udderly” good time when you visit Goat Life and Proctor’s Goat Farm in Winter Haven. The goat farm is a family-run and farm-fresh initiative that offers tours plus a variety of cold-processed goat milk soaps, lotions, and loads of other goodies.

U-Pick Farms

It’s no secret that Florida has earned a reputation as one of the world’s leading citrus fruit providers, making it an ideal agritourism destination – the region is teeming with citrus grove tours and blueberry, blackberry and peach u-pick farms.

Open year-round, Ridge Island Groves proves a popular stop for tourists and locals alike. Bring the kids and wander the groves, or pick your own orange during your visit. Visiting the groves in Haines City is free (as well as the many fruit and juice samples) and organized tours are $8.00, making Ridge Island Groves a perfect way to get outside with your travel party on your Central Florida vacation.

Shady Oak Farm in Lakeland delivers a wide range of u-pick farms to choose from. Blueberries, strawberries, muscadine grapes, squash, tomatoes, and sugar cane…you’ll enjoy the freshest produce possible when picking at Lakeland Berries at Shady Oak Farm.

Check our Calendar of Events for the 2021 u-pick schedules.
