2020 CHERRY UPDATE:
Please note that there are no u-pick cherries for 2020 due to a harsh spring frost in April. See you in 2021 for more cherry picking!
Life is a bowl of cherries.
- Cherries from the tree = mind blown.
- The season is short & intense.
- Sweet & sour available.
Ever tasted a real cherry, fresh?
Sweet cherries from the trees are unlike anything you’ve ever tasted. It breaks my heart to think of children living in today’s society who truly believe that cherries taste like the candied-red sundae toppers that are soaked in sugar and preservatives.
Break the cycle.
Maybe that’s you, too! Please, treat yourself to a trip to pick cherries. Pick them with the stems on to preserve them, then enjoy them fresh or easily freeze them. Just don’t go another year thinking “Sundae toppers” are real cherries.
Short & intense.
Good news: Cherries are amazing.
Bad news: The season is SHORT.
We make announcements via social media and email for the sweet cherry season. Please connect there for updates because cherry season is short. We have been trying to establish a new orchard, but the deer keep eating the young trees, killing them before they can produce more cherries.
Sweet & sour.
We are one of the few places you can pick sweet AND sour cherries. I never thought I’d be interested in a sour cherry. They’re just for pies, right? You have to pile on sugar and syrup to make a gelatinous filling for them to be edible, right? Wrong. I eat sour cherries raw, straight from the tree and the flavor is so full of cheek-tingling cherry-ness you’ll never want to eat sour candy again.
Freezing made simple. Save your cherries the easy way.
