Cherry Harvest Report July 10, 2016 Season

What are raspberries doing on the cherry report?

                                 Our cherries are still ripening.

Our weather has changed and we have had some mild, drizzle rains.  Cherries love the cooler weather.  They have relaxed and have begun to put on size again.  This means, instead of building sugar and preparing for harvest, they have slowed down. We are fine with this and have blow dried the orchard  four times with a helicopter. Our best guess, on this day, is July 15 for our upcoming  harvest.

To all of you who are waiting for cherries, watch this page.  We believe we have close to a week until the cherries have a Brix number that will indicate growth, sweetness, and color.  …..We will harvest when they are at their prime.

Now, regarding raspberries:

We are absolutely loaded with wonderful raspberries.  We are having u pick people at 4pm each day.  If you would like to pick raspberries, please call us at 406-871-5499.  We would love to see our raspberries in your refrigerator, too!

I have made jam and it is wonderful this year.
