It’s Cherry Time…

Our harvest is scheduled!  I am making raspberry cakes in the kitchen.  We will begin on Friday, July 15, 2016.  Everyone is ready and the spare tire  for the trailer is new.  Dan has oiled up the ties and the bins will be picked up at Glacier Fresh Cherries in the morning.  They are the fine people who pack our cherries and send them to market. Our tart cherries are ready, too.  This means we now have u pick for raspberries, sweet cherries, tart cherries, and apricots will be ready next week.  Wish us well, the hours will be long, but we are ready to work!  Thank you!

Harvest Schedule Plans

Plans can change if it rains.  As of today, Wednesday, we plan to begin harvest at Daylight on July 15, Friday.  We will work Friday, Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.  We will ship boxes on Monday, U S Postal Service.  They are guaranteed to arrive Tue, Wed, but some areas:  Thursday.

Tart Cherries are ready, too. The best cherry pies are made with the good sourness of tart Cherries. These are Montmorency. We cannot ship, “too, juicy”. We do allow U Pick for tarts. All of our trees are easily accessible.

  1. Is it possible to U pick cherries Saturday, July 16 and if so do you specific hours? We are looking to pick approx 50-60 pounds of cherries for canning and freezing. Thank you so much for the reply.
