West Michigan Berry Pickers Rejoice…They’re Ready

flickr/ timsamoff

We’re so used to stopping by the grocery and getting our fresh fruit.  It’s so easy.  But, aren’t we missing all the fun?

I remember as a kid going to the strawberry patch and picking…and eating…those yummy, juicy strawberries.  Mmmmmm, good!

Here in West Michigan there are abundant fields of fresh berries for you to pick, but you’d better hurry because growers are seeing high demand this summer.

Our news partner, WZZM TV13 reports many farmers have even closed their fields for a couple days after visitors picked their plants clean. The increasing demand also led to a shorter cherry season for some growers.

Want to pick you own?  Here’s a list of some of the U-pick locations open in West Michigan this summer. Prices, fruit availability and hours vary daily, so it’s best to call ahead before visiting any farm.
