Feel free to bring your own containers to pick into, but we also sell pick-your-own berry supplies at the farm.

We sell berry quart boxes and pick-your-own trays if you want to pick in to standard containers. Rainy/stormy weather can affect picking conditions, so it’s always a good idea to call ahead (616) 527-3630 for the fastest updates and to check pick-your-own conditions in the strawberry patch before you come out.

HANULCIK FARM MARKET & PICK-YOUR-OWN STRAWBERRY PATCH
Strawberries taste good and are good for you. Every juicy strawberry is rich in Vitamin C and beats out citrus fruit ounce-for-ounce. One serving of eight medium-sized strawberries has a 140% of the U.S. Recommended Daily Allowance (RDA) of Vitamin C. They have no fat grams and there are only 50 calories in one serving.
For three generations we’ve grown and perfected our strawberries on our local family-owned farm in Ionia MI. We’re proud of our reputation for delicious, mouth-watering Michigan grown berries, fresh from the patch. They have a sweet, sun-ripened taste you can only get from berries picked at their peak of ripeness.
Please subscribe to email alerts, call (616) 527-3630 or email us for details and up-to date-picking conditions.
Our market is open seasonally during harvest times, with both fresh-picked and pick-your-own fruit starting in mid-June-early July with our delicious STRAWBERRIES, PEACHES in late July through mid September, and APPLES starting mid-September through October.
