Where to go for U-Pick Apples and Fall Fun

Apple picking is so much more than gathering produce. Enjoying time outdoors in the midst of the crisp fall air and the beautiful colors is the real experience. We are lucky to have so many different varieties of apples in Michigan and this is the time of year for you and your family to gather your very own bounty. If you’re wondering where you can go to pick a peck of apples (including organic) around Kalamazoo and Southwest Michigan, we’ve got your list right here!

Looking for the perfect pumpkin? For the ultimate fun fall activity, head to one of the pumpkin patches and let the kids select the perfect pumpkin.

Note: We recommend calling ahead to the apple orchard to verify that apple picking is available and what variety is available for picking at the time that you plan to go.
