COME PICK AT CRANE ORCHARDS
Farmed since the 1880's and currently on our 6th generation of Crane farmers, our orchard strives to be one of the finest u-pick orchards in Michigan. We offer many different varieties of apples, peaches & sweet cherries for u-pickers to choose from when in season.
Here at Crane Orchards we strive to give you and your family a great experience to create fall memories as you pick apples, get lost in our corn maze, and pick pumpkins (later in the season).
Our goal is to create an environment in which all feel accepted and welcomed on our orchard.
With that being said, a friendly reminder that our orchard, the orchard across the street, and the pie pantry/restaurant are all separate businesses. We are all extended family and wish each other the most success, but are all separately owned and operated, so please try to address praise or concerns to the appropriate business. (We LOVE hearing that the pie pantry’s pies are out of this world, but they love hearing it even more, as so many hours and so much love is put into them on their end.)

Thank you all so much for your continued love and support, and we look forward to seeing you for apples this year!

We are now closed for the 2023 u-pick season. Big thank you to everyone that came out to support our farm! We couldn’t do this without you. See you for our drive-thru holiday light show in 2023 and next year for our 2024 u-pick season next summer!

WE ARE NOT FOR SALE
No need to worry! While we appreciate everyone that has reached out to us about articles or news features written about Crane’s U-Pick across the street from us on the North side of 124th, that is not our orchard. We do understand the confusion as we share the Crane name, but we are separately owned and operated businesses. Both us and Crane's Pie Pantry Restaurant & Winery are not up for sale and hope to see everyone in the upcoming year for cherries, peaches, and apples!
