West Michigan growers are seeing high demand for berries this summer.
Many farmers have closed their fields for a couple days after visitors picked their plants clean. The increasing demand also led to a shorter cherry season for some growers.
Here's a list of some of the U-pick locations open in West Michigan this summer. Prices, fruit availability and hours vary daily, so it's best to call ahead before visiting any farm.
