Spicer Orchards

About Spicer Orchards

Spicer Orchards is a large orchard in Fenton that offers a wide variety of u-pick fruits as well as sunflowers, a corn maze, and even Santa. They are one of the only orchards offering u-pick cherries with both sweet and tart cherries. It is always fun to watch their pitting machine go to work on the tart cherries.

They offer u-pick apples and are often one of the first to open as their apple crop includes early season (summer) apples. We have also picked blueberries while at the orchard for apples.

Be sure to stop in their market. Not only do they have cider and donuts available, they also have a winery which serves meals.
