Ann Arbor U-Pick Cherries

Ann Arbor Cherry Picking

Spread the love

Check out our Ann Arbor Cherry Picking suggestions for where to pick cherries – both sweet and tart cherries. Update in progress for 2021.

Summer in Ann Arbor is a great time for fresh fruit. Cherry season is typically right around Fourth of July – sometimes a week before, sometimes right after. The cherry season can overlap with strawberries, blueberries, and raspberries. Unfortunately, as in 2020 the 2021 is not a great year for cherries with a late frost in May.

Cherry Picking Tips

The cherry season is short. Be sure to check with the farm for current conditions before making the trip.

What to Bring:

  • Dress for the weather. The week we picked was chilly, so we wore jeans.
  • Sunscreen
  • Bug spray
  • Water – make sure to stay hydrated
  • Bring a container or use one of theirs. Spicer charges $1 for a pail to use while picking. Wasem has no information on picking containers. I know we usually buy bags for apple picking.
  • Cash. Some farms only accept cash or check. Others take cards, but it can still be helpful to have cash for deposits on picking containers.
