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.

Update Wednesday 5/22/24: Fruit Acres Farm Market is Open for the 2024 season. There are Delicious Sweet Local Michigan Strawberries and Fresh Local Asparagus ready to buy. We also have Jams, Salsa, Tea, Lots of New Gift Items, Cantaloupe, Watermelon, Vegetables, Potatoes and Onions from the southern states until the Local Melons & Vegetables are Ready to Pick this year. Local Strawberries have just started for the year, so they should be available for another 3 weeks. But Asparagus will probably be done in about another week. Local Black Sweet Cherries will start around June 18, but that is not an exact date. This spring has been so warm, Cherries are earlier than usual, but it is hard to guess an exact date. There is a very good crop of Sweet Cherries this year for the U-Pick.

Randy and Annette Bjorge have found a wonderful local family  to take over the day by day management of Fruit Acres Farm Market and U-Pick starting in 2024 (this year). The plan is to  keep the Farm Market and U-Pick selling the same great Local Fruits and Vegetables as usual (with great new products, ideas and updates). We are so glad we found someone with many years of Local farming experience, to take the farm into the future. Randy and Annette will still be living in Coloma, and we will be around to assist everyone. So we may see all our great customers around the area. Thank you all so much for being great customers and friends and employees. Please continue to visit Fruit Acres to get the highest quality Local Fruits and Vegetables.We are still healthy and want to enjoy life in Beautiful Southwest Michigan. It has been a wonderful life, but we are happy that there is a future for this farm!

Thank you, Have A Great Day!
