Sonny’s farm stand

Just south of Leland, this little farm stand is a well-known landmark in the area. An old farmer sold his fresh-picked produce out front of his farm here for years. It was always on the “honor” system. No one was there, you just left the money for what you took. I guess he passed away several years ago, but it’s being run again by a dedicated young man right out of agricultural school. I had some amazing, right off the tree, cherries.

I wanted morning light, so I arrived first thing. He wasn't open yet, but I painted anyway. I'll have to go back and do it again. I think it may be better when it’s open.

Oh, man, the cherries in Michigan! Delish! Love the yellow farm stand.
