Your family takes a tractor driven Wagon Ride to the orchard that you pick the delicious Apples. We give you a half bushel basket with a plastic liner in it to pick in. You have to buy ALL the fruit you pick, you cannot just buy part of what you pick, and return the rest. When you pay for the fruit you take with you, you can buy the basket for $5 or just lift the bag out with the fruit in it and take it with you that way. Or you can bring your own basket to pick in and take with you. You can bring food and have a picnic under the Free covered picnic area and Playground. There are no grills for you to use. But you can bring your own grill to use. Apple U-Pick will be through October 22. Apple U-Pick Address is 2789 Friday road, Coloma, MI 49038.

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.
