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 few. And in Macomb County, there are plenty of u-pick farms for you 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 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?
Note: Weather conditions may lead to changes in the availability of produce this season. In addition, some farms are requiring the use of face masks and are enforcing other COVID-19 safety measures. Call for details before heading out.
