As of July 2, 2015 We still have lots of Black Sweet Cherries and Rainier Sweet Cherries and Sour Pie Cherries for U-Pick NOW!!Beautiful Black Sweet CherriesWe are open everyday including July 3, July 4 and Sunday July 5 from 10am to 5pm. Sweet Cherries are $2.99 per pound for U-Pick or you can buy them already picked at our farm market 10 pounds for $24.99 (that is $2.50 per pound). You can also buy pints ($2.99) or quarts ($4.99). U-Pick means You can pick the cherries right off the tree yourself.

The Cherry U-Pick address is 6299 Carmody Rd Coloma MI 49038

There is lots and lots of U-Pick Sour Pie Cherries in good Beautiful sour pie cherriescondition. Sour Cherries are $1.29 per pound for U-Pick. For U-Pick Sour Pie Cherries we will be open 10 am to 5pm everyday through Sunday, July 13, while quantities last. I am now taking orders for us to hand pick Sour Pie Cherries at the same price. You must order the Sour Cherries we pick for you 1-2 days (or more) ahead. They are hand picked but we do not have a pitter to pit them for you. You must bring a container that does not leak to put the sour cherries in because they will leak all over your car, a cooler is great or big big tupperware or a plastic tote. Do not try to use small plastic bags because they will not work.

There is no u-pick Peaches or Nectarines until August and September. Apple u-pick is September and October. We have nothing but Cherries for u-pick right now.

Fruit Acres Farm Market is open with Our Own Big Black Sweet Sweet Local BlueberriesCherries, 10 lb box $24.99, Local RedRaspberries ($4.99 pint) and Local Black Raspberries ($4.99 pint). Local Black Raspberries are a very sort crop so come in the next week before they are gone for the season. Local Sweet Blueberries, A large assortment of local Michigan Herb Plants ($1.29 each), Local Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Cucumbers, Green Cabbage. This is all from local farms within 20 miles of our farm market. This weekend we are getting the first of the season northern Indiana Peaches and Cream Sweet Corn, so it is getting very close to michigan sweet corn. Michigan Strawberries are done for the year.

Please remember that Michigan is 1 hour later than Illinois time. 5 o'clock Michigan is 4 o'clock Illinois time.

Now for an update of the crops. Sour Cherries, Apricots, 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.

CHEMICAL USE PRACTICES

  • We use Integrated Pest Management (IPM) which means we only spray for insects according to their life cycle and if that insect has been spotted by scouting orchards every few days.
  • We use pheromone when possible to eliminate or greatly reduce the use of chemicals for certain insects such as Oriental Fruit Moth, Codling Moth and Peach tree Borer. We participate in studies with Michigan State University for peach and apple to reduce chemical use as low as possible depending on the weather conditions that particular year.
  • Michigan unfortunately has too much natural insect pressure to farm organically on a commercial scale. The western states with their dry desert weather conditions are better suited for that possibility. If we could save a lot of money and time by not spraying and grow a sellable fruit we definitely would.
  • We do not grow genetically altered peach trees. The new Stellar peach varieties are hand cross-pollinated on a mother tree to get the new varieties the same way breeders have been doing it for hundreds of years. There is no genetic manipulation in a laboratory.

PLEASE COME VISIT US NEXT JULY FOR CHERRYTIME!!
