U-Pick Cherries

A Message from Annette on July 3, 2022.

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.

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.
