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!

U-PICK PEACHES

UPDATE: WOW we’ve seen some crowds this morning, so will be closing at 2:30pm today while we wait for more peaches to ripen. We will post an update as soon as we know when we’ll be open again soon. We appreciate everyone coming out for these early peaches, and have a lot more coming up!


🍑 We will be open for U-Pick Glenglo peaches Saturday July 20th at 10am..


If we see large crowds supplies could be limited and we may need to close early to allow more peaches to ripen. We have a beautiful crop of peaches though, so no need to worry if we do need to close early. There are lots of peaches yet to ripen! Please check our website, phone, or social media for updates on hours before traveling from a distance. 


Glenglo is a beautiful eating peach that is freestone. Please keep in mind that if you’re canning, later varieties tend to be more cling-free than earlier varieties, but these are fantastic for eating and baking!


Peaches are $1.90/lb. The orchard accepts cash or card ($5 minimum for card purchases). 


*Please also note, we are The Orchard on the same side of the road as the restaurant with the white picket fence. The orchard across the street is a separate business.*

NEWS
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!
