Charlie’s U-Pik began by ‘accident’ in the mid-1990s when Mr. Charlie, the face behind our logo, planted 10 acres of tomatoes. After realizing there was an excess of tomatoes, Mr. Charlie placed an ad in the local newspaper advertising “pick your own tomatoes” and the rest is history!
Our original location is in Lucedale, Mississippi. Our Lucedale field is approximately 100 acres. Our Lucedale location is conveniently located near Lucedale, Leakesville, Meridian and Mobile, Alabama area.
In 2017, we expanded our operations by opening a second location is Wiggins, Mississippi. Our Wiggins field is approximately 50 acres. Our Wiggins location is conveniently located near Wiggins, the MS Gulf Coast, Hattiesburg, and Louisiana.
Both locations offer your favorite Mississippi spring and summertime staples such as tomatoes, watermelon, sweet corn, peppers, cantaloupe, and so much more! We offer a u-pik option where you can pick your own produce for $12 per 5-gallon bucket. If picking your own produce is not for you, we also offer a wide variety of already picked items.
From our family farm to your family, we look forward to seeing you at one of our two locations!!
