Happy 4th of July!!!

Fruit Acres Farms U-Pick Sweet Cherries is done for the year. There are no more Sweet Cherries on the tree for you to pick. There is no more Black Sweet Cherries or Rainier Cherries for you to pick off the tree. There is no Upic of anything on Monday, July 4th. You can buy already picked Black Sweet Cherries from our Farm Market , just off I-94 Exit #39 on the south side for $5.99 pound. I should have Michigan Black Sweet Cherries for about 2-3 weeks from now.

Fruit Acres Farm Market is open everyday 9am to 7pm including Monday, July 4. The market now has Black Sweet Cherries and Sour Pie Cherries from our own farm ($5.99 pound), Local Red and Black Raspberries ($5.99 pint), First of the Season Local Blueberries, Local Zuchini, Sugar Snap Peas, Snow Peas, Pickles, Cucumbers, Yellow Squash and Peaches and Cream Sweet Corn from Indiana (It is Delicious)(Very special early corn).

Sour Tart Pie Cherries are $1.49 pound if you pick or if I pick them. Monday July 4 I do not have any U-Pick Sour  Pie Cherries. But you can buy Sour Cherries already picked at our Farm Market or if you need over 20 pounds, you can come to our farm at 2559 Friday Road, Coloma MI for larger amounts. If you call and order how many Sour Cherries you want a day or 2 ahead, they will be picked fresh for you. I hope to have fresh Sour Cherries available now through Sunday July 10. Right now the Sour Cherries are very nice with very few discolored cherries because we have not had any high winds or storms here lately. (Thank God). But the weatherman is predicting rain and wind this week, so they might not be as pretty as they are right now, after the winds go through.

​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.
