Friske Orchards

10743 N. US 31, Ellsworth, MI - (231) 599-2604

Behind the counter is a selection of the day's pies. Our personal favorite is toward the upper left: caramel apple. A la mode, please!

Friske's apple room is just beyond the glass door. The fresh-fruit aroma inside is dizzying.

Friske has an orchard to visit and pick your own; but if you need immediate gratification, this big, modern farm stand along Route 31 is the place to go.
