2020 Essential Pumpkin Patch & Apple Picking in Southwest Michigan Guide

Kalamazoo Pumpkin Picking

Dive Right into Fall with Apple Picking and Pumpkin Patches

Apple picking, Michigan – they just go together. It 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 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 their favorites.

Note: Since apple varieties ripen at different times of the season, it’s best to check directly with a farm’s u-pick schedule online or give a call to see when your favorites are ready for picking.
