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. If you find anything outdated or
inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!
New! As inflation remains high, see this page for cost-saving measures for
getting fruit and vegetables and home canning.
If you are having a hard time
finding canning lids, I've used these, and they're a great price & ship in 2 days.
New! Road tripping and camping is a great way to have a fun, safe and inexpensive
family trip. The national and state parks and monuments are open, and campgrounds usually cost between $10 and $40 per night. September to November is the best

Note: Beware the copycat websites like the one that stole
our name and uses .farm extension: they copied my work and do NOT even update
the info! I make updates EVERY day. They use tech tricks to get higher rankings,
but have many more inaccuracies and out-dated info. Obviously, I cannot check
every farm every day, but I do check as many as I can every day, and respond to
all requests. They don't. Don't support the scammers!
Remember to always check with the farm's own website or Facebook
page before you go - or call or email them if they don't have a website or
Facebook page. Conditions at the farms and crops can change literally
overnight, so if you want to avoid a wasted trip out there - check with
the farm directly before you go!
And if you know of any farms I missed and want to
add a farm, please let me know!

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."

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
