I called the Long Family Farm in Commerce Township, Michigan produce Hotline (248) 360-3774 today to check on strawberries. The first strawberries are now in. Currently they are only selling picked strawberries. U-pick strawberries will be on sale starting around June 13th (weather depending).
I went to Long's today, price for picked strawberries was $13.00 for 4 quarts, sold in 4 quart containers. They were excellent! U-Pick price will be around $7.00 per 4 quart container. (don't forget your pre-cooled ice chest) Updated June 19, 2008. Lots of berries are available. Picked strawberries were still 13.00 for four quarts. There was still some asparagus as of Monday.
Long Family Farm strawberry U-pick fields are located on Bogie Lake Road north of Wise/ W Commerce Rd.
Additional Michigan and Oakland County U-pick and produce stands are available on the U-Pick section of the Michigan Website.
