Sweet Cherry U-Pick

Fruit Acres Farms is the largest Black Sweet Cherry grower in Southwest Michigan for the amount of acres and different varieties of sweet cherries grown. Most of the varieties are Big, Sweet, Delicious, Juicy, Black Sweet Cherries but we also have all gold color Sweet Cherries and pink color Sweet Cherries.

We grow over a thousand dwarf Sweet Cherry trees. The fruit tastes and looks just like the bigger trees, but the dwarf trees are easier to pick because trees are much smaller and you don't need ladders, as all the trees can be picked from the ground. Next to our dwarf trees are huge old Sweet Cherry trees, some being over 70 years old.

Sour Cherry U-Pick

Sour Cherries are also available for U-Pick. Sour Cherries can be used for making Cherry Pies or other baked goods, Dried Cherries and Cherry Juice that is great for arthritis, gout and helps with Cancer and Heart Disease.

​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.
