October 2019 3×3 – It’s Fall in West Michigan
Just in time for fall, we made our way out to Versluis Orchards on Lake Michigan Dr to check out the fresh produce available at the farm stand! Versluis Orchards is a 5-generation family farm established in 1903 and if you’ve never stopped by the farm stand, we definitely encourage it!
While we were there, we took a stroll back into the orchard to talk about some of the fun, festive, fall events coming up in October. Check out all of the event details below and remember, if you need any real estate needs, we would be happy to help.
