Here we are receiving from the National Cherry Festival the 2011 Very Cherry Promotion Award! We are very proud to of this! Thank You!
Excerpt by Richard Lehnert of Good Fruit Grower Magazine:
The National Cherry Festival Committee gave two awards during cherry industry meetings in Traverse City this week.
The Very Cherry Promotion Award went to John and Betsy King and Jim and Rose King, who grow fruit, operate two farm markets, and run a successful Internet business in which innovative tart cherry products play a big part. King Orchards, Central Lake, Michigan, sells such products as dried cherries, cherry juice concentrate, and Balaton cherry salsa, as well as more conventional products such as pie fillings. They avidly promote the health benefits of tart cherries.
