Our u-pick raspberry season at HoneyBee U-pick is officially over, but we will still have u-pick flowers until the first frost. HoneyBee U-pick will be open from 8 AM – 12 PM on SATURDAYS ONLY until Oct. 28. The dahlias are absolutely stunning right now for $1/stem! We also will have Tantre Farm produce, Jacob’s Fresh Farm honey, Elder Farms eggs, and Marc Boone’s paw paws available for sale as long as we can during these next few weeks.
However, we have opened a SELF SERVE produce wagon stand with a Payment Box, so you can come all week long to get produce, such as sweet corn, carrots, potatoes, onions, garlic, winter squash, and now PUMPKINS, even if our raspberry patch is not open. All sorts of pumpkins and squash are ripening, so they will continue appearing on the produce wagon more and more! A very small u-pick flower garden of dahlias, strawflower, globe amaranth, and sunflowers is still open now for picking. Stay tuned for updates!

Tantré Farm started its very first crops of potatoes, winter squash, and garlic in 1993 on a 40-acre parcel. Since then our farm has grown to include about 80 to 100 varieties of vegetables, mushrooms, and a small variety of herbs and flowers. Our fruit crops include strawberries, raspberries, blackberries, pears, melons, and more depending on the fruit weather. In addition to that, we have a dog, some cats, a small flock of egg-laying chickens and ducks, a few pigs, and a small herd of cows. Now our farmland has grown to about 115 acres of wetland, woods, and sand-loam fields in the area.
We sell our produce through CSA shares, at various local stores, restaurants, and also at the Ann Arbor and Chelsea Farmers Markets.
