Disclaimer: Busy Weekends Ahead
Fall Harvest in Michigan is a tradition. That means weekends at the farm will be busy. You can expect peak times on Saturday & Sunday between noon and 5pm. We have lots of cider, donuts, and apples, but there may be lines at checkout lanes and entering the orchard. If you love the flurry of activity and connection to others you will have a great time. If you want to avoid people, make plans to come early or during the week.
Apples are picked in pre-paid bags. Please purchase at the market, or PYO Barn on the weekends, before entering the orchard. Thank you.
Fall Raspberries are what I describe as "hit and miss" What I mean by this is that one day you can have fantastic picking, but the next day needs more ripening followed again by another great picking day. If your heart is set on Raspberries give us a call to check on picking conditions. (810) 632-7692.
Picking conditions change daily and even throughout the day depending on picking volume and weather conditions. If picking conditions are of great importance to you, please call the market at (810) 632-7692 for the most up to date conditions and realize that they could change before you arrive.
