Michigan offers the largest, wide variety of non-citrus fruit production in US.

If you don't live in the Northwest, there is no better place to live than Michigan when it comes to available fruit. Moreover, most fruit producers are small businesses, typically family owned. This opens the opportunity for you and the grower to provide UPick. Take advantage of your state!
