BLUEBERRY PICKING

AVAILABILITY: Look for blueberries in early July near Kalamazoo.

PICKING/STORAGE: The best blueberries are light gray-blue in color (any red = not fully ripe). When finished picking, leave your container open until you get home to prevent moisture from settling inside. Once home, refrigerate them unwashed, in a sealed container.

CAN I FREEZE THEM? Absolutely. Freeze in a single layer, unwashed.

Where & When to Go Fruit Picking Near Grand Rapids

Nothing beats a fresh-picked Michigan strawberry or a handful of plump blueberries straight from the bush.

Lucky for us, West Michigan is a major fruit belt, providing us with some of the tastiest natural treats in the nation.

Of course, you need to know when these goodies are ripe for fruit picking.

In general, West Michigan offers excellent strawberry picking in June. July brings us cherry picking, blueberry picking, and raspberry picking options, followed by peach picking in August.

We&#;ve also included a handy map to help you find the answer to your &#;fruit picking near me&#; search.

Organic U-Pick Farms

Some families going strawberry picking or blueberry picking prefer crops that are organic or as natural as possible.

To help you find nearby fruit picking locations with these farming practices, you&#;ll find that farms marked with an *asterisk in this guide may be a no-spray farm, a sustainable farm, or an organic fruit farm. Please call to confirm the details.

Tips Before You Go Fruit Picking

Call ahead (or check their Facebook page) for the most up-to-date information. Some places on our list are only open by reservation. Others may be out of a certain fruit already.

When you call, ask:

&#;How&#;s the picking?&#; 

All U-pick days are not created equal.  Aim for a day where the berry picking 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 along berry picking, you always need to ask this one.

&#;How do we find you?&#; 

Oftentimes, the address listed by a farm is for the main farmhouse, office, or farm market rather than the berry picking field. It can be really hard for GPS to pinpoint a field of pick-your-own 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 home your fruit is common across West Michigan. Buckets, pails or baskets work well for blueberry picking and strawberry picking. Plastic sacks may damage fruit if they get too heavy &#; farms will often use these to line pails for berry picking, though, for transport home.

&#;May we sample as we pick?&#;

The answer to this varies from farm to farm. It&#;s courteous to ask at your destination and follow their wishes. Side note &#; you may want to limit your sampling while berry picking. These fruits aren&#;t washed and can cause an upset stomach.

Strawberry Picking

Strawberry picking season in West Michigan is in June.

Typically, berries ripen and are available to pick at Grand Rapids area fruit farms a week or two into June but that varies from year to year.

Check with the local strawberry patch farmers on this list for their specific opening details.

Blueberry Picking 

Blueberries are ready to be picked around West Michigan from mid-late July through early August. Blueberries are easy to pick yourself&#;it&#;s a good way to save a little money while making some fun memories.

Blueberries do freeze well&#;my kids love to snack on them frozen throughout the year. We stock our chest freezer in July and enjoy Michigan berries all year long.

If you&#;re planning to do the berry picking, check with the farm before heading over (on their Facebook page or give them a call) to see what picking is like for the day. During peak season they can get &#;picked out&#; before their normal closing times.

Cherry Picking  

Cherry picking season in Grand Rapids is early July (for sweet cherries) and late July (for tart cherries).

Picking your own cherries can be an involved task&#;sometimes requiring scaling a couple steps on a ladder. If heights aren&#;t your thing, you can opt for fresh pre-picked cherries instead.

As with most small farms, check with these cherry picking places (look on their Facebook page or give them a call) to see what is available to pick.

U pick Fruit and Veggies: Family-Fun Activities 

Upicks are great for kids, too.

Children are able to learn how to harvest produce themselves: which crops grow in what season and how these plants grow.

Both strawberry picking, raspberry picking and blueberry picking are perfect activities for families; a great way to bond over delicious fruits that just may make their way into a family dessert to be shared later on.

During strawberry season, a morning picking strawberries and and afternoon spent making strawberry jam can be both fun and educational, and create some lasting memories, too.

What is a U-Pick Farm?

As lifelong Michigan natives, we’re frequent customers of local farms, and are happy to fill you in on everything you ever wanted to know about U picks in Michigan.

Also known as a Pick-Your-Own farms, U-Pick farms are farm operations that give their guests the opportunity to pick their own produce at an inexpensive price.

Because guests are able to sample the crops while they search for their perfect fruit or vegetable, a fee to enter the field is generally needed. Regardless of the fee, U-pick farms are still more affordable since there is no longer a middleman. 

U-pick farms are a great way to support local farms while providing your family with healthy handpicked produce.

Environmentally-Friendly UPick Farms

U Pick’s made good sense environmentally, too.

If you are the type to consider the environment, this farm-to-table operation results in less emissions being released as the local produce is being moved at a shorter distance.

Around the s, produce prices were unable to meet the costs of harvesting and packaging, thus resulting in farmers encouraging their customers to visit their land to choose and gather their own produce.

From then, farmers learned that this strategy became a cost saver for both them and their customers.

As for the customers, they learned that this made an enjoyable day trip for their families.

Rain, wind, or sunshine, no matter the weather, U-pick farms are many families’ choice in spending a day out with each other.

When you visit these farms, you are given the opportunity to feel accomplished and adventurous at the same time while supporting the local economy.
