CHEMICAL USE PRACTICES FOR FRUIT ACRES FARMS:

  • We use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which means we only spray for insects according to their life cycle and if that insect has been spotted by scouting orchards every few days.

  • We use pheromones when possible to eliminate or greatly reduce the use of chemicals for certain insects such as Oriental Fruit Moth, Codling Moth and Peach Tree Borer. We participate in studies with Michigan State University for peaches and apples to reduce chemical use as low as possible depending on the weather conditions that particular year.

  • Michigan, unfortunately, has too much natural insect pressure to farm organically on a commercial scale. The western states, with their dry desert weather conditions, are better suited for that possibility. If we could save a lot of money and time by no spraying and still grow a sellable fruit, we definitely would.

  • We do NOT grow genetically altered fruit trees. The new Stellar peach varieties are hand cross-pollinated on a mother tree to get the new varieties the same way breeders have been doing it for hundreds of years. There is no genetic manipulation in a laboratory.

Please ask for a free sample of any Apple, 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 Apple to try. There is a sink nearby to wash the fruit before you eat.

 Our Apple Cider is made from our own apples in a blend of several different kinds including Honeycrisp. It is made from 100% apple juice, NO Added Sugar, No Preservatives (so you can make hard cider out of it). To freeze cider for the winter, you must pour out a little (about 1/2 to 1 cup), reseal the lid and put in the freezer. The reason you take some out is so it does not expand when freezing and make a huge sugary mess in your freezer. It is still delicious after being frozen. I freeze several half gallons myself for drinking at holidays, and giving as Christmas presents. We are closing for the year Sunday October 25.
