The U-pick is now closed for the season. A special thanks to the many, many people who stopped by this year for some great fruit! Be sure to save the dates for next year in case you missed it, we will be open from late July through late October.
We don’t offer entertainment, just excellent quality fruit and clean open spaces for families to enjoy quality time together at our friendly 70+ acre U-pick. We have portable restrooms available. Like always, you just stop at the entrance and pick up your bags, no need to get out of your car, then you’re free to drive out to the orchards and vineyard. Cash and credit cards are accepted.
The 2017 Season saw a major change at Shafer Orchards. Tom and Wendie Shafer decided to step aside from the farm and U-pick operation.
The farm and U-pick business has been leased to Doug and Suzy Forraht, an established local family experienced in fruit production and sales. The Forraht’s created a new entrance to the farm and set up a sales building at 9800 Hartline Road, Baroda MI 49101. The new farm name is now “The Shafer Farm LLC.” We are confident that you will continue to enjoy picking the same quality fruit you have become accustomed to picking when you come to the farm. We encourage you to come to the farm and begin a relationship with Doug and Suzy and their family. You will find them to be friendly and ready to show you where and how to pick some of the best fruits produced anywhere.
