Springhope Farm: Galien, Michigan

I'm looking forward another good season of picking our own fruits and veggies and one of our favorite U-Pick places is Springhope Farm in Galien, Michigan. It will be a bit before they open for the season, but once the orchards are ready, they'll be bursting with beautiful peaches, cherries and apples.

Galien is not too far over the Michigan border, so for those coming from Illinois and Indiana, it's an easy drive for a summer day. You can choose to either take a tractor-drawn wagon ride out to the orchards to pick your own or pre-picked items are available in the farm stand. They also carry a variety of vegetables when in season and some local honey, apple butter and other canned (or should we say jarred?) items.

During the summer season where other outings may take us to lively amusement parks or crowded community pools, visiting a U-Pick farm makes for a quiet, relaxing day of enjoying the outdoors in such a serene setting. The kids always love running around in the open space and then eating the fruit they picked with their own hands.
