Bourner’s Orchard

Bourner’s Orchard has fresh fruit usually available in the autumn of each year.

It is a bit sporadic in August as peaches are a fussy fruit. It is always a good idea to call ahead to verify availability of any fruit:  (269) 375-6208.

Closed for the Season

Come again in 2018

This is a small, locally owned and operated centennial business. Some of the trees were planted back in 1913 and still produce quality fruit. This is a cash or check only business. Cash is preferred. His fruit is also occasionally available at the Kalamazoo Farmer’s Market on Bank Street at John Reuter’s stand.

From late September through mid-December, there are apples, unless he sells out early. Sometimes there are even peaches, pears, apricots, and plums too. Check back in summer too for strawberries and red raspberries. The apples are Bruce’s main crop. Please check to see when each item is available.
