Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in East-Central Michigan? Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in East-Central Michigan,
sorted by county. Those that offer organic or sustainably grown produce are identified by the words "organic" and/or "sustainable" in Green, next to their name
(see "What does Organic mean?"). The U-pick crops they offer follow the name of the farm. To search the page for a specific crop, use Ctrl-F (or on an ipad or Mac, use their "search on this page" function)
If they have a website, the name will be in blue and underlined; click on it and it will open their website. Beware of copycat websites (such as the one that starts with "pickit" and the one that ends with ".farms"; they do not update their information, they just steal it from us once in a great while (they are plagiarists operating in Russia and China), so theirs are usually out-of-date -and often copied incorrectly! I put dates to indicate when we last received an update from each farm,
and I make updates daily (each farm as their info changes). See the customer and farmer menus at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
And if you know of any I missed and want to add them or correct the
information, please let me know!

in those areas, soon also strawberries and blueberries.Check your area's
copy calendar (see this page) and call your local farms for

Comments from a visitor on July 12, 2010: "We visited on June
12 & 22, 2010. Very friendly place. Great price for pyo strawberries. Many
varieties, too. Very yummy! Well-maintained farm with nice rows. After the
season is over they mow the plants down and use commercial fertilizer. I
believe the owner said that they use a weed deterring product before the
plants come up and that no pesticides are used on the plants/fruits while
growing. Goats and chickens on the farm for the kids to look at."
Comments from a visitor on July 14, 2009: "This is a great place to pick
strawberries! They have several varieties and their patches are very clean,
straw between the rows. They even offer free sunscreen and bugspray! They
are expanding for the 2010 season. The berries we picked this year were
wonderful! They don't have a website, I always just call the phone number
that has a recording of when/if they are picking. There is a number on the
recording if you are pre-ordering berries to pick up there. "
