Starting in Autumn, be sure to check out our wide variety of PUMPKINS and jack o’ lanterns — in classic orange, white, blue/gray, or green colors; and assorted textures from smooth to fun “bumpy” skins. We have pumpkins for every style and decor inside and outside your home!
PICKING YOUR OWN fruit is a fun family activity. All ages are welcome in the strawberry, sunflower, and raspberry patches, peach & apple orchards, and “taste testing” is encouraged while you pick. Sorry, but no pets are allowed. Our apple orchards have smaller dwarf trees, making it fast & easy to pick apples right from the ground, no ladders required!
ALL AGES welcome in the strawberry patch, peach or apple orchards, so bring the kids and grandkids! Feel free to bring your containers to pick in to or buy supplies at the farm.
The pick your own patch and orchards are open on selected dates and hours. Hours and dates of operation for each of our main fruit harvests are announced close to each harvest date. From our farm to your table: Savor the flavor of fresh-picked MICHIGAN GROWN strawberries, raspberries, peaches and apples in season; OR pick-your own and SAVE!
PLEASE NOTE: The pick your own patch & orchard may close due to inclement weather (like pouring rain or thunderstorms in the spring, and snow, hail, or wind storms in the fall). We always recommend you call the ahead to confirm picking conditions if there is bad weather. Since rainy/stormy weather can affect picking conditions and sometimes demand can exceed supply of fruit available, it’s always a good idea to call ahead (616) 527-3630 to check pick-your-own conditions before you come out.
PICK YOUR OWN ORCHARD INFO: Please be aware and careful as you walk through the orchard for branches and fallen fruit on the ground. Our apple orchard has dwarf trees that are easy to pick from. Our peach orchard has regular size trees, but there is low hanging fruit you can reach from the ground. You may also bring your own ladder (but you would assume all risk, should you do so). Always use care when walking in the orchard & fields, recognizing that there may be debris on the ground or uneven surfaces. (FYI: We do not assume responsibility for any injury arising out of a condition of the soil, trees, crops growing from it, and are not responsible for these conditions).
We take advance STRAWBERRY, PEACH & APPLE ORDERS:
Please call the market at (616) 527-3630 to place your advance orders and ask about our new drive up service. Simply drive up to a designated area to pay for and pick up your advance order, without leaving your car when you use the new drive up service.
