Blueberry U-Pick now. Degrandchamps 76241 14th avenue, South Haven, MI Phone (269) 637-3915. There are many more Blueberry U-Pic farms in the South Haven area, but this is my favorite.

I am sorry but I will not have any Apricots this year. My trees died last winter for some reason (they were old). So I will not have my delicious Apricots anymore. I will try to get some from up north somehow. Sweet Eating Plums from our farm are mostly ready for the season. But unfortunately we had problems with pollination when they were in bloom and I have some plums but not alot of them. So get them when they are available, they won't be there everyday like usual.

​This year I am starting a Email Newsletter, so if you want the most up to date information sent to your email, please sign up for the newsletter (after I set it up). This is the most reliable way of making sure the information is delivered to you every week. But now I am trying to learn how to design and start it. It is alot more complicated than I thought it would be. I am sorry but I am having problems getting this going, Technology does not like me.  I will have it figured out soon.
