Let’s Get Picky – Where Families Can Pick Fruit in the Lansing Area

I couldn’t even begin to pick a favorite thing to do during Michigan Summers. There are so many things to do in these warm months – but fruit picking is pretty high up on the ranking. The warm breezy air, strolls through the farms, hands on do-it-yourself picking, and the satisfaction of eating what you worked for are all reasons my family and many others love U Pick blueberries, apples, and more!

A huge “Thank You” and shout out to all of the farms who allow this and give the wonderful opportunity and adventure to Greater Lansing communities and beyond!
