Fresh, ripe, juicy berries may be the ultimate summer food. They can be simmered and served alongside a scoop of vanilla ice cream, baked into a sweet pie, or simply enjoyed fresh. Luckily for Michiganders, our state’s unique climate and soil composition allows these sweet treats to flourish throughout the state during the summer, and farm-fresh berries aren’t far. For the absolute freshest summer fruits, visit one of these six spots and pick blueberries, cherries, strawberries, and more straight off the bush.
Verellen Orchards & Cider Mill
This historic orchard and cider mill in Washington is a certified Michigan Centennial Farm, meaning it’s been operated by the same family for over 100 years. Visit in June and early July for fresh strawberry picking, or in late July and August for cherry picking.
