U-Pick Cherry Farms

Go Cherry-Picking During the Festival

Traverse City is the cherry capital of the world for a pretty good reason. Our land is rich and our cherry farms are abundant. With so many farms to choose from, it's easy to get an authentic cherry orchard experience during your visit and take home fresh cherries that you and your family pick yourself.

Our friends at Taste the Local Difference curated this list of farms that you can visit during the National Cherry Festival to pick cherries from the orchard. It doesn't get any fresher than this!
