We are coming to the last few days of sweet cherry picking. Tomorrow is the last day for picking at the M 88 market. We have a later variety (the Hudsons) that will be able to be picked at our US 31 market through the weekend.
The tart cherries are looking great right now! We will be offering U-pick of Montmorency tart cherries through the weekend and into next week. Free pitting is provided for anyone who picks two buckets (about 28 lbs.) of tart cherries.
The Balaton tart cherry season is in full swing now as well. They are a great variety of tart cherries that are darker, a little sweeter, and more firm than the typical Montmorency tart cherry. We offer these in our market by the quart and lug (20 lbs.). We are also offering these to those customers who do not live in the area for shipping (call us for prices and shipping quotes). Shipping will be available until Tuesday of next week.
We will be beginning apricot season within the next 4 days or so. Those will be available for U-pick and in our market. There are tons on the trees so make sure you take a trip to the orchard to help us get them all off the trees!
