Michigan is a prime spot for picking – and we’re talking about more than just apples in fall. In fact, summertime is ideal for picking strawberries, cherries or raspberries, to name a new. And in Macomb County, there are plenty of u-pick farms for your and your family to go pick your own.
When it comes to the best times to pick berries in Michigan, mid-June is a great time for strawberry picking, followed by blueberry-picking season in late July through August, and raspberry season, which takes place from July through September.
So this summer, why not stop by one of these u-pick farms in Macomb County to grab your own?
