IMG_1635  We are shipping our cherries, around the country, on Monday, July 23.  They are two day priority mail and should reach most addresses Wednesday.  When you receive your cherries, rinse in a colander and chill.  Alert your mail carrier, concierge or mail hub.  Some states reduced mailing centers and the box may take an extra day.  The cherries are so fresh, they should be fine.  We are picking and shipping on the same day.  Send a blessing to the mailing system.  Enjoy.  We love serving you.  Thank you for supporting our orchard work.  We try to grow the best cherries possible.

You will be receiving a French cherry called Lapin.  Lapin is a word for  rabbit. The logic in the name  is because our trees have big, long eared leaves.  The leaves shade the cherries and protect them from weather.  The leaves are helping with the heating when necessary or the cooling of the cherry.  Hale storms can’t even hurt our cherries. (usually), lol.

These cherries are grown in pristine air, and soil. They are watered with pure and lovely, crystal clear water.IMG_6149
