Iron County has an abundance of wild berries ranging from early strawberries in June to thumb-size blackberries in August. The fruits of the harvest are used for pies and jams, but many don’t make it out beyond the berry patch as they get popped into the mouth for immediate gratification! In addition, there are blueberries and raspberries growing along roadsides, near parks, campgrounds and picnic areas. Or visit a Farmers Market for the home-grown delights as well as for sweet corn, potatoes and pumpkins as the seasons dictate.
Iron County is one of the Upper Peninsula’s best kept secrets. From camping to fishing, hunting to canoeing, mountain biking to forest bathing – no matter your interests, the great outdoors and clear crisp air await you here.
