Latest Picking Information and News

Posted on July 30, 2015

The Opening Date for 2015 will be Sat. Aug. 15 from sunrise to sunset.  Hours for the rest of the season are 8:00 to 8:00.  However, we have a small field of an earlier variety which needs to be picked before the regular Opening, but is not nearly big enough for an Opening.  Therefore, in order to limit the number of pickers to match the crop, we will admit about 25 small groups a day with appointment cards for Monday through Friday next week. We will be at the Tawas Farm Market this Saturday (the first) for sign-up for the appointment cards on a first come basis.  Otherwise, please plan on joining us for Opening Aug. 15 and/or the rest of the season.  The price is $1.30 per pound U-Pick.

 Our farm earned the Michigan Agriculture Environmental Assurance Program (MAEAP)  "Environmentally Verified"  designation in 2014
