When it comes to picking fruit, like most Michiganders, I've tried my hand at apple picking. And come apple season, Phillip's Orchard in St. John's is the place to go. But, when we're talking about berries, strawberries in particular, Diederich's Farms in Webberville is where you wanna be. Their Earlyglow strawberries have to be one of the best tasting berries I've ever had in my life. Plus, they have other produce you can buy while you're there, like asparagus.

But Diederich's isn't the only farm in the area with u-pick berries, my investigative skills dug up a handful of berry-picking paradises. With summer around the corner, brace yourself for a berry bonanza! It's practically a rite of passage to grab the kiddos and hit the fields. Just a heads up though, those little munchkins might end up eating more berries than they pick.
