Hands on the Harvest

berries at Slow Farm

Fall is the time of year I can't help thinking of Makielski Berry Farm on Platt Road--and with no small amount of bittersweet nostalgia. It was where my sons, friends, and I would go picking every fall, in beautiful wide-open fields. Alas, it closed a couple years ago, and I've been exploring replacements since.

So it's with great enthusiasm I report I've found a pleasant new place to pick fall berries, close to Ann Arbor but with a wide-open feel. It's Slow Farm at 4700 Whitmore Lake Rd. just past Warren when you are driving north from Ann Arbor. It is a certified organic U-pick farm, and they expect their plump red berries to last through the end of October. They also will have many varieties of squash and pumpkins through fall, and in season you can pick much more: basil, other herbs, tomatoes, corn, beans, flowers... the list goes on and on.
