Dear U-Pick Friends,

Another u-pick season is approaching and this will be our thirty second, how time flies! We had another mild winter in Southwest Michigan and a cold, wet spring. In early May we had two nights with temperatures dipping into the mid twenties, there was wide spread damage in all fruit crops. However, thanks to an extra heavy bud set we have a very good supply of peaches and apples.

As usual Crane's U-Pick is committed to offering high quality fruit at reasonable prices. We are looking forward to seeing our faithful customers soon. Our picking schedule is shaping up like this:

All time frames are an estimate. Please be sure to call 269.561.5126, for fruit availability and weather conditions before making plans or driving any distance.
