If you want to pick your own berries, rain and other weather can affect picking conditions, so we always recommend you call ahead to confirm patch conditions before you come out to pick your own. Call us at (616) 527-3630.
Feel free to bring your own U-pick containers! Many of our customers pick their berries right into colanders, bowls, or buckets so they can rinse the berries and get cooking right when they get home. We simply weigh your own containers so we can subtract their weight from the per pound U-pick price.
Need a large order of ready-picked berries for a party, celebration or special event? We welcome special orders! Please call the market to place your order. We also have recipes for elegant chocolate-dipped strawberries or frozen strawberry daiquiris for your next wedding shower, barbecue, or neighborhood block party. Visit our RECIPES page for these and more creative ways to serve strawberry inspired dishes.

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.
