RASPBERRIES- In 2017, two-250 foot rows of red raspberries were planted and have now produced big robust red raspberries that can be picked daily in June and July, and then again in August and September. The raspberry fields will continue to grow as new rows will be added each year! Two black raspberry rows are pruned yearly and ready for picking along with the red raspberries in June and July.
WINE MONTH- April is National Wine Month in Michigan and May celebrates with many local Wine Tours. Stop in and relax with a glass of McCallum's Harvest Fruit Wine grown, processed and bottled right at McCallum's Orchard! Pick from many fresh wines including: Apple, Peach, Cherry, Strawberry, Blackberry, Red Raspberry, Pear, Blueberry, Tart Cherry, and Concord Grape. Yummy!
