Tips from locals
Family friendly orchard offers fresh produce to snag on the way to the beach or “U-pick” your own strawberries, raspberries, cherries and apples. Fresh baked goods (pick up a pie for dessert!)
The King family operates my favorite orchard/market/bakery just a couple miles outside of Central Lake. They allow you to pick your fruit and I never miss a chance to pick their strawberries in June and thier sweet cherries in July. I keep frozen sweets in my freezer all winter long for post run…
The King's are a wonderful family and are really good to their customers. They offer u-pick for tons of different fruit, they have cherry juice concentrate, cider, jam, and already picked fruit.
Walk, bike or drive to King Orchards. Great place for locally grown seasonal fruits and vegetables. Also, check out Providence Farms (Hwy M-88) and Friske's Market (Hwy 31 N).
