We love raspberries and they are easy to pick – but require a gentle touch as they squish easily. Years ago I used to pick my own raspberries at Makielski Raspberry Farm in Pittsfield Township which has since closed.. Other than a few bushes at Wasem, I did not know of other raspberry farms until summer 2020. There are a few u-pick raspberry options near Ann Arbor.
Our family now has the ultimate raspberry picking near us! Over the last 3-4 years we have found a number of raspberry plants growing in our flower beds. We have consolidated them and this is the first year we’ll have our own berries!
