Welcome to the Farm!
The USDA recognizes Michigan as one of the premier sites in the world for growing black currants. The new (old) superfruits.
We started our farm with the firm belief that our community deserves access to the most nutritious fruits available.
That is why we endeavored to be the first commercial growers of black currants, red currants and gooseberries in Michigan, serving u-pick customers as well as the wine, liquor and food industries.
Please visit us and make Coon's Berry Farm your first step on the path to healthier living!
If you are planning to visit the farm, you may want to know we welcome RVs on our property. If your RV or camper is self-contained you can reserve your spot for an overnight stay on our beautiful grounds. Our winery Currant Mist is now located at the farm too, as an additional perk for your stay.

We usually have both u-pick and pre-picked black currants. Registration for pre-picked black currants normally occurs late May through early July via the online form on the Fruit Delivery page of the website.
Red currants and gooseberries are only available as u-pick at the farm. We do NOT sell those berries pre-picked.
Many of you showed interest in sour cherries. Although we do not grow cherries, we are combining efforts with a Northern Michigan cherry farm to bring sour cherries to you in summer 2024. We will update our Fruit Delivery page in late May to give you more information about upcoming fruit deliveries for the 2024 season.
Please subscribe to our emails to be notified of our harvest updates. Thank you for your support!
