Cherry Point Farm and Market in Shelby, Michigan is known for its many fruits, pies, breads, jams and fudge. The fruit and farm market has been running smoothly since 1961 and is currently run by the fourth generation of the founding family. In 2001, owner Barbara Bull began to build a lavender labyrinth, which is now her most popular attraction and is big enough to be seen on Google Earth!
She designed an asymmetrical flower maze with a herb garden in the center and recruited artist and architect Conrad Heiderer to help put her design to life. The whole walk to the center of the labyrinth takes about an hour.
The labyrinth’s French lavender peaks in the springtime and blooms through the summer until it dries up and is collected in the fall. The farm also has other seasonal apple, peach and cherry trees and plants you don’t often see at other markets.
Anyone can walk this beautiful labyrinth and you don’t even need to make a reservation!
