U-Pick Summer Berry Guide In + Around Lansing

With sweet summer comes sweet, sweet berries. Yum! It’s a great activity to take the kids out and spend a few hours out of the house. U-pick is fun and rewarding for both kids and mom! Strawberry season is just beginning and soon you will be able to pick raspberries, blueberries, and more.


  • Don’t forget to bring sunscreen.
  • Tennis shoes are the go-to for this occasion.
  • Call ahead to make sure the farm is open, accepts the form of payment you prefer to use, and if you need to bring your own buckets.
  • Bring a wagon along– the collapsible ones are perfect for this activity!
  • Look in the middle and the bottoms of bushes– these areas are often overlooked and you can find more berries than on the already-picked outside.
  • Stick to one spot and pick it clean before moving on.

Hi, I'm Morgan a mom of 3 boys 3 and under. We live a simple country life on the outer skirts of the greater Lansing area. We enjoy farming and each other's company. I take a more natural approach to motherhood. Moderation is key in my mothering Journey.


  1. I had no idea all all these different places were around the area. A couple, but so good to know the different places if one place is closed or ran out. I like to make small batches of different jams so we don’t get bored with one flavor, but strawberry is our favorite.
