U-PICK FRUIT FARMS IN WEST MICHIGAN

Call ahead before you head out to pick. Some places on our list are only open by reservation. When you call, ask:

  • “How’s the picking?”  All U-pick days are not created equal.  Aim for a day where the fruit is plentiful and close together and the picking will be easier, especially for younger kids.
  • “What type of payment do you accept?” and “What’s the price?” Be prepared to bring cash. Some places take checks. Smaller operations are not likely to have the ability to accept credit cards.
  • “Is there a restroom?”  When you have little kids you always need to ask this one.
  • “How do we find you?”  Often times, the address listed by a farm is for the main farm house or office or farm market.  And it can be really hard for a GPS to pinpoint a field of strawberries if it doesn’t have its own separate address.  So, go old-fashioned and get directions ahead of time when you call.
  • “What do we need to bring?” Bringing your own containers to take your fruit home in is common across West Michigan.
