Don’t worry Michigan, you did not miss blueberry season. (Sigh of relief). You can still pick blueberries across the Mitten State! Blueberry season runs from mid- July until the beginning of September, however the peak of the season is the last week of July into the first 2 weeks of August.
Where should you go? Don’t worry, I’ve got your back. Here are some local farms where you can pick this weekend:
Southeast Michigan: Spicer’s Orchards: 10411 Clyde Rd, Fenton, MI 48430. Spicer’s also boast’s a winery and soon pumpkin picking! (too soon)?
Southwest Michigan: Brookside Farms Fritz’s Blueberries: 1475 116th, Martin, MI 49078. Jams? Honey? Local produce? Get your hook up right here.
West-Central Michigan: Post Farms: 12 Mile rd NE and Myers Lake Avenue, Rockford, MI, 49341. Not just for blueberries. Flowers, basil, pumpkins and family fun! Phunny Pharms Blueberries: 4258 50th St Holland MI 49423. Bring your own containers to a place that is well versed in the organic blueberry growing business.
Northern Michigan: Buchan’s Blueberry Hill: 1472 Nelson Rd, Traverse City, MI 49686. Blueberries and homemade ice cream. Enough said. Should I pull the car around?
If you don’t have time for this year because of #MichiganderProblems- school is starting, we are closing up lake houses and putting away boats. Don’t worry, we’ve already got ideas for next year. How about renting your own blueberry bush? http://www.joesblueberries.com/
