We U-pick a different variety of peach every week. There is about 25 pounds in a half bushel basket. We do give you a free bag for the peaches but if you want the basket it is an extra $3. You are welcome to bring your basket back from last year for you to use and take with you. We will have u-pick peaches every weekend now through September. Peaches are ripening very slowly this year because of all the cool weather we have been having. If the peaches you buy are very hard, please just set them on the counter for 2-3 days until they are getting soft. Do not put them in a plastic or paper bag. Peach U-Pick is open ONLY Saturday and Sunday & Labor Day from 10am to 4:30pm. The last hayride leaves for the orchard at 4:30. So you cannot go u-pic after 4:30. We are NOT OPEN for U-Pick during the week. You have to buy the peaches already picked at our farm market. We are 1 hour later than Chicago time.

We are picking Chenango Strawberry Apples, also know as Sheepnose Apples. This variety was first grown in New York state (Chenango valley) since 1855 and is a very popular apple with the Amish to make applesauce for canning. It is a semi tart, very soft apple with a pink skin that makes the Applesauce slightly pink. Applesauce experts like it as much as Lodi or Yellow Transparent. They will be available at the farm for $10 bushel with a new cardboard box. We pick fresh to order.

Gas in Michigan is currently $3.55 gallon.

Now for an update of the crops. Most varieties of 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.
