  • Is your farm organic? What sustainability practices does your farm follow?
    Unfortunately, cherries can not be grown organically for fresh quality in Michigan. Our vegetables and other crops are grown without any sprays, but we do not go through the process of organic certification because our CSA is too small to justify the cost. However, we are deeply committed to environmental sustainability and the absolute safety of our cherries. We use an Integrated Pest Management approach to minimize spraying and nip pest and disease issues in the bud in order to avoid the use of harsher chemicals. Our farm participates in an environmental review program as well as two annual food safety audits in order to ensure that we are being the best possible stewards of the land and that our fruit is grown and harvested in a sustainable, healthy manner. We use compostable or recyclable packaging products to further reduce our environmental impact, and we aspire to use solar energy to move our farm in the direction of carbon neutrality over the course of the next few years.
  • What are you doing to minimize the risk of Covid-19?
    The health and wellness of our customers and employees is our primary concern, which means we are taking careful measures to create a clean and safe cherry-picking experience: We will provide you with single-use plastic bags upon your arrival, which will be used to weigh the cherries, and are meant to be taken home. Customers are strongly encouraged to use hand sanitizer, and maintain six feet of distance between your group and others.
  • Do you have pre-picked cherries and apples?
    Yes! As of 2023, we now carry pre-picked cherries and apples at our u-pick, along with cider, honey, maple syrup, popcorn and donuts.
