A Note From Annette & Randy:

As of September 26, 2014 Every Saturday and Sunday we have U-Pick. U-Pick Star 116 PeachesWe do NOT have any U-Pick Honeycrisp Apples left for this year. The U-Pick orchard did not have many apples in it this year because of the cold winter. You can still buy Honeycrisp Apples already picked at my farm market for $22.99 half bushel. This is the last weekend for U-Pick Peaches at $.99 per pound. Star 116 peaches are very sweet and juicy BUT they do NOT come off the pit. We do have Sweet Juicy Autumnstar Peaches already picked (they do come off the pit). Both the peaches are good for canning, freezing, baking or just eating. Get your peaches before they are gone for the year.

We do have U-Pick Apples now too for $.79 per pound. For Saturday 9/27Mild Cortland Apples for U-Pick & Sunday 9/28 we do have U-Pick Sweet Golden Delicous Apples (good for anything) & Red Delicious Apples (good for eating only) & Tart Empire Apples (for baking & eating) & Mild Cortland Apples (for applesauce & eating). There is about 25 pounds in a half bushel basket. We do give you a free bag for the U-Pick peaches & apples 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. 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 & Apple U-Pick is open ONLY Saturday and Sunday from 10am to 4:30pm. The last hayride leaves for the orchard at 4:30. So you cannot go u-pic after 4:30. There is NO admission charge & we offer a FREE picnic area with playground & FREE hayrides to the orchard. We are NOT OPEN for U-Pick during the week. You can buy the peaches or apples already picked at our farm market everyday 9 to 7. We are 1 hour later than Chicago time.

At Fruit Acres Farm Market we are selling sweet juicy freestone Sweet Autumnstar Peaches already Autumnstarpeaches now. This is the last freestone (comes off the pit) peach we will have for sale this year. Peaches already picked from our farm are $26.99 half bushel (about 25 pounds) plus $3 if you want the basket. Smaller amounts of peaches are also available.

 

Sweet Honeycrisp ApplesApple season is finally starting with Sweet Crisp Honeycrisp Apples. That is still the favorite apple of the year. Honeycrisp is good for eating, baking, applesauce & anything you want. Sweet Gala Apples & Jon-a-gold Apples & McIntosh Apples & Early Golden Delicious Apples. Gala, Jon-a-Gold, & Early Golden Delcious are great for everything including eating, & baking. McIntosh is not good for baking because it is soft but it makes a great applesauce. These Apples are picked fresh from our own farm.

 

Improved Stanley plums are Improved Stanley Plums just like Stanley plums you have known, but these are newer improved varieties. They come off the pit very easy, are bigger, sweeter and more juicy than Stanley Plums but still can be used all the same ways for canning, liquor, drying or just eating. $26.99 half bushel or smaller quantities are available. All the plums are grown on our own farm.

Sweet 100% Apple Cider ($3.99 half gallon or $6.99 gallon). We have our own blend of Sweet Apple Cider with no sugar added. We use all our own Apples & it does have HoneycrispSweet Concord Grapes Apples in it (along with other kinds of sweet Apples). Try a free sample.

Sweet Local Blue Concord Grapes have started finally. We have them for $2.99 quart box or $17.99 half bushel. Concord grapes are great for Jam, eating, or juice but DO have Seeds. Please order the half bushels so I make sure I have them when you come. Right now I was able to get some yellow colored Seedless eating Grapes that are SO Sweet for $2.99 quart box.

 

 

 

Local Bartlett PearsAt Fruit Acres Farm Market we have Sweet Local Bartlett Pears. Pears are better if they are picked green and let ripen either in the refrigerator to ripen them slow, or on the counter to ripen them in a few days. I like them when they are nice and yellow and Sweet. Bartlett Pears are $19.99 half bushel or smaller amounts are available. Lots of Local Red Ripe Tomatoes, Roma Tomatoes, Local Grape, & Cherry Berry Tomatoes, Red Raspberries, Fresh Cauliflower, Big Cabbage, Brussell Sprouts, Fresh Green & Yellow Beans, New Potatoes (red & yukon), Eggplant & Beets. Acorn, Carnival, Spagetti, Sweet Potato & Butternut Fall Hard Squash. Peppers include Green, Red, Yellow, Orange & Purple Peppers, Jalapeno, Cherry Bomb, Anaheim, Poblano, Roasting, Sweet Snacking, Finger Hots, Cayenne, Hot or Sweet Banana Peppers.This is all from local farms within 20 miles of our farm market.

Beautiful Pumpkins for carving or decoratingFor Fall decorating we have beautiful local Mums with lots of buds waiting to come out in their glory,3 for $13.99. These are mums that were grown in a field instead of a greenhouse, so they are more likely to come back next year. Before winter hits, put straw or leaves over the mums to give them some insulation so they can make it through the winter. This doesn't always work, but it will increase your chances. Great large Pumpkins finally have arrived for you to look over and take home. If you want small Pie Pumpkins for inside or outside we have them for $.99 each. Beautiful Indian Corn $.79 per ear is scattered all around the farm market. Really cool gourds (for decoration) 2 for $.89 are in too.

Gas in Michigan is currently $3.46 gallon.

Now for an update of the crops. Most varieties of Apples have a good crop. 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.
