Oh, Go Climb a Tree!

Our villages sit in the middle of The Fruit Belt, farms growing blueberries, apples, peaches, cherries, raspberries and blackberries. They’re here due to the warm breezes off Lake Michigan which make superb growing conditions. It’s great fun in fall to spend a few hours picking your own apples at Crane’s Orchard, no matter what your age. There’s also a Corn Maze, Pumpkin Barn, Haunted House and best of the entire famous Crane Pie Pantry --- for great soup, cider, and pie a la mode! www.craneorchards.com
