These dates below are not exact. They are the average time the item is available on a normal year. The only problem is in Michigan we never have normal years. Sometimes they are earlier and sometimes they are later.

Welcome to Fruit Acres

A Note from Annette and Randy: Friday, June 11, 2021

Fruit Acres Farm Market is now open for the  season. We now have Sweet Local Strawberries,  fresh Local Sugar Snap Peas and Fresh Snow Peas. I do not have U-Pick Strawberries!

UPICK IS STARTING MONDAY JUNE 21, 2021.  Fruit Acres first U-Pick of the season will be Black Sweet Cherries.  We do have a slightly bigger crop than 2020 in both Sweet and Sour Cherries, but it is NOT a huge crop which means we will probably only be open for Sweet Cherry U-Pic (Black Sweet Cherry, Black Sour Cherry ) for about 3 days in a row. There are very few Rainier Cherries on the trees to pick so don't plan on getting them past the first day. Cherry season is done very fast every year. 

Price for U-Pick Black Sweet Cherries & Rainier Sweet Cherries & Black Sour Cherries are $4.99 per pound. There is a $5 admission per person for ages 6 and up. Children age 5 and under are free. If you pay for 10 lbs of Sweet Cherries, you get 1 paid admission refunded (you get $5 back). 20 lbs of Sweet Cherries picked,  refunds 2 admission and so on.

U-Pick Cherry Address: 6299 Carmody Road, Coloma, MI

 

The Red Montmorency Sour Cherries will be starting around June 29 and going about 1 week.  You can also buy Sour Cherries or Sweet Cherries already picked at the farm market when the u-pic is available too.

Fruit Acres does have a large peach crop this year and we will have U-Pick starting August 14 and going until September 5. Peach and Apple u-pic is open weekends only. Apple u-pic will start around Labor Day and go until the middle of October.

I am starting a Email Newsletter soon, so if you want the most up to date information sent to your email, please sign up for the newsletter. 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.
