Pickin' Time!!!

Earlier in the week I picked these beauties! My husband L.O.V.E.S. raspberries!

I use a site called Pick Your Own (.org) to locate local picking venues, and that's how I found fresh raspberries at Erwin's Orchard in South Lyon, MI.

I picked just shy of seven pounds of berries (single handedly) in just over an hour! Erwin's berries are delicious and plentiful! Plus, for those of you who may be interested in picking a few berries for yourselves, Erwin's bushes are pickable until the first frost... for $3.95/pound!

I called ahead (like just as I was walking out the door... 248-437-0150) to make an appointment and to make sure that there were plenty of berries to pick. Monday's may be slim pickings days if the previous weekend has been heavily attended by pickers!

I'm definitely heading back to Erwins!

Will YOU be picking this summer?

I pick raspberries at Erwins every year! Great cherries and apples too!

Laura Webber

I'm not surprised!!! I need to try cherries next year!


We love picking raspberries (and apples) at Erwin's, too. If you want honey crisp apples, you have to line up an hour or more ahead of opening in order to get any. It's crazy. Thanks for letting me know that it's raspberry season at Erwins. We'll have to go!



Laura, thanks for the link for the u-pick farms! I didn't know there were any close to me but there are 2. Going to check them out.


These look delicious. Could there be a raspberry something tutorial coming soon?
