Fruit Stand

You'll find our fruit stand bountifully stocked with our finest quality in-season produce. At Friske Orchards we grow asparagus, rhubarb, strawberries, raspberries, sweet cherries, tart cherries, plums, pears, apricots, peaches, nectarines and, most of all, apples! Many of these items are available individually quick frozen (perfect for smoothies or year-round fresh pies!).

We also offer other fresh locally-grown produce like sweet corn, tomatoes, green beans, potatoes and even lettuce from Grandma Friske's garden. Whether you need fruit to make a dessert (or a healthy something that tastes like dessert!) you'll find nothing but the best in Friske's fruit stand.

 

Marketplace & General Store

Visit our old-fashioned General Store for a stroll down memory lane, all while also enjoying a trendy new shopping experience. From unique specialty foods and kitchen gadgets to home decor and nostalgic games, you'll find an exceptional selection rooted in local, USA, and fair-trade products.

3 generations of the Friske family!
Richard Jr, Wendy, Olga, Kasey, Richie, Heidi, and Jon

Hi, we're the Friskes! A little bit about us...
Richard and Olga Friske arrived in northern Michigan in 1952, leaving their war-torn German homeland behind. They worked hard at several ventures while their children were born before purchasing a run-down, bankrupt, 240-acre farm near Charlevoix Michigan in 1962. Richard and Olga, along with their three young children, labored to rejuvenate the orchards and build their dream, Friske Orchards. 
Fast forward to 2016... At Friske Orchards Farm Market, you'll find three generations of Friskes along with an outstanding team working passionately to provide you with the finest quality fruit, award-winning apple cider, famous donuts, from-scratch pies and pastries, fresh-from-the-farm style breakfast and lunch and a delightful line of handcrafted foods and unique gifts. The Friske family welcomes you to visit Friske Orchards Farm Market... not your average fruit stand.
