Stovers Farm Market & U Pic
7837 M-139, Berrien Springs, MI 49103
Stovers Farm Market – “Our U-Pic started over 30 years ago to give our customers the advantage of hand selecting quality produce right where it grows.
Yes, there is a difference between buying produce from your local supermarket and picking it yourself in our fields. When produce is naturally ripened and at its peak of freshness, the flavors are unbeatable.
In addition, U-Pickin’ is just good old country fun. And you save money to boot! By picking your own, you can save from 30% to 70% off of what you’d probably pay to have fresh fruits and vegetables year-round from the supermarket.”
