Fall in Michiana means a lot more than the return of Halloween Decorations and pumpkin spice lattes.

Here in the heart of the fruit belt, it’s also the return of a harvest tradition: U-Pick!

Our partners at ABC 57 news have put together an amazing list of locations throughout the area where you can pick your own apples, pumpkins, and more. This includes locations throughout Southwest Michigan and North Central Indiana, like Kercher’s Orchard in Goshen, Lehman’s Orchards in Niles, and Walkerton’s Stanton Road Pumpkin Patch.

Grab the kids and a sweater and start making your plans!
