Pick Your Own Operation
We plan to be open for Sweet Cherry Picking around the beginning of July. We cannot give a definite opening date as ripening depends on weather conditions. We will only open when the cherries are sweet enough for picking. We are open weekends only from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. (Saturdays and Sundays).
The price for Sweet Cherry Picking will be close to last years price. There is a minimum purchase of $4.00/adult and $2.00/child which is payable before entering the orchard. This amount is deducted from the final purchase of your fruit. Containers are available or you can bring your own containers.
