We are a small family farm that has 1 acre of fall raspberries available for you to pick. We also offer chicken eggs and several other vegetable crops and flowers as available through our roadside stand. We are not certified organic but do follow sustainable practices on our farm (no synthetic fertilizers, fungicides or pesticides).
Our season begins around the third week of August with 'Autumn Bitten' variety of red raspberry, by about Sept. 1 the bountiful 'Heritage' breed will kick in and the season will continue through hard frost (mid-October in the last several years). We are currently open 8:00 a.m. -8:00 p.m. Tuesday and Thursday and 8:00 a.m. till 1:00 p.m Saturday and 1:00 p.m. till 8:00 p.m. Sunday. This allows us to have ripening days (note: if it has rained on one of our open days please call for an update you can usually come on a ripening day if our supply permits). We operate on an honor system if we are not available. We supply pint containers for picking into. Please check out our blog (address listed above) for the most up to date information.
We are just minutes from East Lansing, Okemos and Lansing.
