Welcome to Fruit Acres
A Note from Annette and Randy: Saturday September 19, 2020
HI Everyone! We do have U-Pick Apples on our farm for you to pick off the tree yourself on Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4:30pm Michigan Time. This week is Sweet Gala, Sweet Early Fuji, Ozark Gold, McIntosh and Jonathon Apples for $.99 per pound, NO Admission. This is just a simple U-Pick farm. You can take a wagon hayride to the Apple Orchard, Pick lots of Apples off the tree, then you can bring your own lunch to eat at our free Picnic Area with free Playground. The U-Pick Address is 2789 Friday Road, Coloma, MI. There is no admission. U-Pick Apples are $.99 pound.
There is lots of Great Local Stuff now at Fruit Acres Farm Market in Coloma, MI. The farm market is located at 3452 Friday Rd, Coloma, MI, Open 9 to 7 everyday.
We have lots of Local Encore Peaches now. They are being picked at another farm in Coloma, MI. They are Freestone (come off the pit), are Sweet, and are Good for Canning, Freezing, Baking and Eating! If the peaches are hard, just let them sit on the counter for 1-2 days until they get soft and juicy. We will probably be done with Peaches on Wednesday, September 23. So the sooner you come to get the peaches, the better.
Please ask for a free sample of peaches, so you can try them. We can't put out a free sample basket because of Covid, but if you ask for a sample (of anything), we can let you have a whole peach to try. There is a sink nearby to wash the fruit before you eat.
Peach Prices are $2.49 per pound, $9.99 for 4 quart basket (basket not included), $18.99 peck (about 12 pounds), $36.99 half bushel (about 25 pounds), the basket is $3 more. We can put them in a free bag or box for you if you want. There is also Canning Grade Peaches (25 pounds) for $24.99.

They are $26.99 half bushel (about 22 pounds), $16.99 peck box, $8.99 4 quart basket or $1.99 pound.

We are a open air Farm Market with air flowing from all 4 sides of our market. That means we are outside. According to Michigan Governor Greatchen Witmer Executive order #2020-110 on June 1, "Any individual who leaves his place of residence must: Wear a face covering over his/her nose and mouth when in any ENLCOSED PUBLIC SPACE". Our Farm Market is not enclosed AND we have plenty of room for Social Distancing, so we and you as a customer are not required to wear a mask. But Please stay 6 feet apart when in checkout line.
I can get Frozen Michigan Sour Cherries that are individually frozen and pitted. They are not all frozen together, so you can scoop out exactly how many you want. You will have to order them with me atleast 2 days ahead. I will have 2 1/2 lb & 5 lb bags on hand all the time, but you have to order any larger sizes. Sour Tart Pie Cherries 2 1/2 lb bags are $7.99 ea, 5 lbs bags are $11.50, 10 lbs (in 5lb bags) for $22.99, or 40 lbs box for $66.00. The place I get them from does not carry 20 lb or 30 lb boxes anymore, sorry. I can get these Sour Cherries all year long, so there is no hurry in getting them.
