Peach Picking in Michigan – List of 19 Best U-Pick Farms

Michigan is known for so many great varieties of peaches. From the Red Haven Peach, which is popular across the US to the relative newcomer Flamin’ Fury that’s gaining in popularity, there’s a lot to love about peaches in Michigan.

If you’re looking for the best time of year to go peach picking in Michigan aim for early July to mid-September with the middle of August being the prime time to go peach picking. 

Quick tips for picking peaches:
