A Note from Annette and Randy:

As of November 4, 2013 The season at Fruit Acres Farm Market & U-Pick is over for 2013. Thank you very very much for a great season. I love all my great customers and great people I work with. Have a great winter. Please like Fruit Acres on Facebook for the latest updates on Fruit Acres

Beautiful Fall Colors at FruitAcres Farms U-Pick

 

 

 

 

 

 

We will re-open in June 2013 with Fresh Local Strawberries. Right now Fruit Acres Farms has a adequate amount of rain and temperatures to produce a wonderful crop of fruit for 2014. We will let you know if anything changes in the winter or spring.

What do Annette & Randy do during the winter? Annette does paperwork, taxes, and computer work to catch up from the last several months. Randy and his helpers fix all the equipment that broke during the season, clean up the farm for the winter rest, figure out what we are planting in the spring, and in December will start trimming apple and cherry trees. We both attend farmer conventions during the winter, in December we will be at Grand Rapids, Michigan for the Great Lakes Expo. We do have plans for vacation in Roatan Honduras to go Scuba Diving . We look forward to a very relaxing winter.

Gas in Michigan is currently $3.33 gallon.

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!!
