Find a local pick your own farm here!

Looking for a local, pick-your-own farm in Northeast Michigan?  Scroll down this page and you will see the U-Pick farms in Northeast 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 If you find anything outdated or inaccurate, see the customer and farmer menus (as appropriate) at the top menu bar to submit updates and corrections and help me keep each current!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! Pricing information - I am building a pricing guide to help you know what the typical prices are for each crop.

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!   I'm making updates for this year as fast as I can - if you find anything out-of-date, wrong or not working - please let me know!

It must of been a bad year for them, and thankfully I only bought one flat, but the strawberries were next to horrible. They were small, with dark spots and did not taste good. I threw away at least two quarts worth that were simply "bad". I will pay more attention to looks and do a "taste test" next year. Considering the weather this year, I'm sure they are not the only farm to experience this problem."
