A Note from Annette and Randy:

As of June 19, 2015 Summer is starting at Fruit Acres Farms. Fruit Acres Farm Market is open for the season! Fruit Acres Farm Market is open with Sweet, Local Homegrown Michigan Strawberries $3.99 quart (1 1/2 pounds) & 8 quart flat $26.99. The Strawberries will still be plentiful trough this weekend, June 22 (weather permitting). After that we are going day by day. We hope we are done with rain for a while. We also have Local Snow (Flat) Peas & Sugar Snap Peas (edible hull) $2.99 pound, and beautiful Herb Plants $1.49 ea. Fresh Local Asparagus will be done for the year after this weekend, so come and get it while it still around. Because of the cool spring this year, the local produce will be 1 week later than usual. Every year is different, that is what keeps life interesting!

Our first U-Pick crop is Big, Black, Sweet Cherries ($2.99 pound) starting Friday, June 26, open everyday 10am to 5pm until the Cherries are all picked (about 10 days). We have lots of great cherries but there are some that are damaged because of all the rain last week. U-Pick Sour Pie Cherries ($1.29 pound) are starting around July 4. After July 7, we do hand pick Sour Pie Cherries on order with 2 days notice for $1.29 pound. We will have Sour Cherries at our farm market, but to be sure we have them on hand, you will want to order the quantitiy you need. Black Sweet Cherries will be at the farm market already picked in Late June.

Now for an update of the crops. Sweet and Sour Cherries, Peaches, Plums and Apples all have a good crop. We are excited about all the crops this year! We are very blessed to have as much fruit as we do this after the very very cold winter. There are many farms that are not as fortunate.

Gas in Michigan is $2.95 per gallon
