 U-Pick at Steve Frank Farms, Inc.  

The brilliant flavor of our fruit is something that can only be achieved by ripening on the vine. The nutritional value of the fruit is increased substantially if it is allowed to ripen on the vine naturally. This is something that you just can’t buy in a store.





Strawberry season usually starts the first week of June and lasts about 3 weeks. We feature the very popular and sweet tasting Jewel Strawberries. This berry is great for freezing or eating fresh with ice cream or shortcake. It’s fabulous color, shape and taste will make you want to pick more and more..

Cherries.pngThe tart cherry U-Pick is located on Deans Hill Rd. in Berrien Center, MI. Cherry season begins the first of July and normally lasts for 10 to 14 days. We have a cherry pitter where you can have your cherries pitted for free. Bring the entire family for a day of fun out in the country. 

Blackberry_128.pngThe Raspberry U-Pick starts at the end of June and continues into July. The Raspberry’s come on at the end of the Strawberry season and continue into the Tart Cherry season. Our Red & Black Raspberry’s have an excellent flavor, and we refer to this tasty little fruit as Natures Candy.
