Fruit CSA

Interested in our fruit, but find it challenging to make it to our orchard or the farmers' markets that we visit every week?  Check out the weekly Fruit CSA that we offer via our friends at Titus Farms who offer their own locally grown vegetable CSA and more.  The fruit is from our farm, but Titus Farms delivers and coordinates the entire CSA.

Whether you are visiting to enjoy our u-pick apple orchard, Michigan cider mill, bakery or farm market, we are proud of the many events and attractions that provide family fun on the farm.  After you shop for mid-Michigan farm products you can pick pumpkins, peaches, blueberries, or apples. Come tour our Michigan apple orchard and be sure to enjoy hot donuts and a refreshing glass of cider made right here in our cider mill from delicious Michigan apples.  For a great fall outing, join us for The Michigan Apple Festival in September.

Since 1871, our apple orchard has offered quality products along with "family fun on the farm."  We continue the tradition of being the only farm in mid-Michigan where you can pick your own fresh fruit and pumpkins.
