A Note From Annette & Randy:

As of July 27, 2014 Fruit Acres Farms U-Pick now is open everyBrightstar Peaches to Pick off the tree yourself weekend with U-Pick Peaches. Peach U-Pick is open 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. We are 1 hour later than Chicago time. The peaches are $.99 per pound. On August 2 & 3 we are picking Brightstar Peaches. We hope to upick Red Haven peaches (maybe some Baby Gold type Cling Peaches too) on August 9 & 10. Please check back closer to the date. Brightstar Peaches are a good early eating peach BUT if you want great sweet juicy big peaches, you will want to wait until August 9-30 for the best all around peaches. We pick a different variety of peach every week. 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.

Fruit Acres Farm Market is now Sweet Juicy Apricots from our own farmselling Sweet Juicy Delicous Apricots, fresh from our farm. They are $5.99 quart, $2.99 pound or $24.99 for a 10 pound box. They are so sweet and good this year. On order we have #2 ugly apricots. They have skin defects on them but they are not rotten. That is what I recommend if you are making jam or cutting them up for your project. They are $20 for a 20 pound box. Sorry there is no u-pick for Apricots.

Fruit Acres Farm Market is open with Our Own Sweet EarlyGold Plums Sweet Local Bluecrop Blueberries10 pound box $22.99, $2.99 pint, & $4.99 quart. Bluecrop Blueberries are the best kind for flavor, and overall the best kind of Blueberry. We will have Bluecrop Blueberries for about 2 more weeks.

Fruit Acres Farm Market is now selling Sweet Earlystar Peaches, & 2 sweet eating plums, both fresh from our own farm. We have Local sweet Peaches n Cream Sweet Corn from our regular corn grower that is sweet & delicious. First of the season Sweet Local Cantaloupe, Jalapeno Peppers & Hot Banana Peppers. Local Red Ripe Tomatoes (when available), Roma Tomatoes, Fresh Green & Yellow Beans, Michigan Lettuce, Green Pepers, Zucchini, Yellow Squash, Cucumbers, Pickles, Beets, Turnips, & Herb Plants. This is all from local farms within 20 miles of our farm market.

Fresh Sour (Tart) Pie Cherries are done for this year. We do always have frozen pitted Sour Pie Cherries (no added sugar) that are individually frozen. So you can pour some out to use and reseal the bag. 2 1/2 pound bags for $8.99. On order I can get a 30 pound box of non sugar sour cherries for $50. I need 2 days notice and I can only get them Monday - Friday.

Gas in Michigan is currently $3.45 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.

Fruit Acres Farm Market has been in the same location since 1963 & owned by the same family. For those that have never visited us before, we are the old fashioned open air Farm Market. My goal is to supply you a large assortment of the best tasting local produce I can get. We sell a large assortment of Fruits and Vegetables, alot of jams, jellies, fruit salsa, honey & Apple Cider (we make from our own apples) in the fall. Across the road is a converted gas station that sells some fruits and vegetables, but also sells alot of other stuff too. That is not Fruit Acres. Please visit the original (the oldest) Farm Market in the area.
