Slow Down. Enjoy.
Southwest Michigan’s Emerald Avenue located in Coloma, Michigan, is close enough for a day trip but far enough from city life to feel as if you’ve escaped it all. Located just off of I-94, Emerald Avenue is a collection of family-owned farms providing succulent fruits, organic vegetables, oak-aged wines, fresh baked goods and the U-pick experience.
Contessa Wine Cellars is a stop for every wine lover. You’ll feel you’ve been transported to an Italian villa when tasting a limited bottling of Tre Tenores from their European-style terrace overlooking the Coloma Valley.
Molter Family Orchards, a fifth-generation farm, is a Whole Foods Market supplier that also offers a Community Supported Agriculture program. Spend a leisurely afternoon sampling their certified organic harvest while enjoying apples, cherries, sweet corn, kale, tomatoes, strawberries, and more.
Jollay Orchards has been cultivating fruit since 1857 and offer a distinctive family experience among their U-pick orchards of sweet cherries, peaches and apples. Children of all ages are sure to enjoy catch-and-release pond fishing, touring the animal farm and exploring the Super Maze.
Watch as apples are run through the cider press in-season or taste 25 flavors of apple cider at the cider bar at Grandpa's Cider Mill. They offer a variety of gourmet food items including jams, jellies and local honey while their on-site bakery features fresh cider doughnuts and fruit pies.
An Emerald Avenue visit is not complete without a stop at the farmers market. Open every Saturday, the market combines the shared history of each farm. Stop by for a guide to each farm and load up on artisan goods and fresh produce to add to your favorite family recipes.
