Farm History About Us
The Friday family settled this 200 acre fruit farm, located in Coloma Michigan in 1846. The Friday's were originally from Bavaria in Germany and named Freitag. Randy and Annette (Friday) Bjorge are the 5th generation of Friday family farming the same farm. We met in college and Randy likes to say he married the farmers daughter. We took over the farm in 1991 after Annette's father James Friday passed away suddenly. We grow Black Sweet Cherries, Rainier Sweet Cherries, Sour Pie Cherries, Sweet Peaches, Nectarines, Plums, Pears and Crisp Apples (including Honeycrisp) already picked at our farm market (when available).
At Fruit Acres you can pick fruit right off the tree yourself (when available). Black Sweet Cherries, Rainier Sweet Cherries are available for only 10 days from Late June to Early July. July 1 to July 3 is usually a good time to come to pick Red Montmorency Sour Cherries. We are open every day until the Cherries are picked off the tree! We are not open for U-Pick of anything on July 4!!
The U-Pick Peaches season is approximately August 12 to September 10. Peach and Apple U-Pick is available Weekends Only. Every weekend there are different kinds of U-PIck Peaches available.
Crisp Apple U-Pick is the beginning of September to Columbus Day. We have 4 different kinds of apples most weekend for upick. Peach & Apple U-Pick has Tractor Hayrides to get you to the orchard we are picking that weekend.
Fruit Stand - Farm Market
Farm Market (Fruit Stand) is open when we can get Fresh Local Produce from Our Own Farm or from our great neighbors. During the Local Season we usually sell (when available) Sweet Eating Plums (July to September), Honeycrisp Apples, Nectarines, Tomatoes (several different kinds), Green and Yellow Beans, Squash, Alot of Different Peppers, Different kinds of Eggplant, Beets, Okra, Brocolli, Red and Black Raspberries, Blackberries, New Potatoes, Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Cucumbers, Fresh Pickles Cucumbers, Leaf Lettuce, Cauliflower, Cabbage, Brussel Sprouts, and much much more. Everything listed above has it's own season! Each item (especially Fruit) may be available only for a week or maybe it is available for 2 months in one year. A grocery store has to buy fruit and vegetables from all over the world so they can be avaible for sale all year long. So please look at the Ripening Chart for when your favorite fruit or vegetable may be available. But remember that the season varies each year by a few days, so check back and see if what you are looking for is ready for the season.
Fruit Acres Farm Market & U-Pick is Closed for this season. We will not be open again until June 2024. Thank you very much to All our Great Customers and Friends for Making This One of Our Best Summer and Fall Seasons. Also Thank You to my Great Employees for helping me this year. Have A Wonderful Fall, Winter and Spring until we open again in June.
