Welcome to Core Orchards, Detroit the 1st u-pick apple orchard.

It may not look like much now but by the year 2020 things will look a lot different.

Picture 300 honey crisp apple trees growing along the city’s landscape.

“We’re planting core orchards because we have a mission of revitalization and support for the communities we serve,” Core Orchard founder Matthew Wollack said.

The Grosse Pointe park-based nonprofit wolverine human services has invested 150-thousand-dollars to plant the trees on Lenox street near Dickerson and Mack on the city’s east side.

The goal is to sow an agricultural destination and offer fresh, affordable produce to the community.
