We are a family owned orchard that offers tree ripened, full flavored fruit in the form of concentrate, juicem and frozen to add to your beer, wine, mead, or hard cider year ’round. All of our craft concentrates and frozen fruit are grown right here in Northern Michigan. Our high quality growing standards make our fruit the best fruit for brewing.
Fruit concentrates are what we specialize in! We make all of our fruit concentrates with whole, tree run fruit! We let our fruit hang on the tree until it reaches its peak ripeness. Our fruit concentrates are offered in (12) 32 ounce bottle cases, 5 gallon pails, and 52 gallon drums. You can purchase 5 gallon pails with the links below. We have worked with many breweries, wineries, and meaderies who find our concentrate to be a great additive during or after the fermentation process.
This summer, we took tree ripened Balaton tart cherries and pitted them in house. We then bulk froze these in 5 gallon pails (35lbs. of cherries/pail). Balaton tart cherries are a slightly sweeter tart cherry with a dark purple color. These are a great option for brewers of all sizes and can be shipped ground!
Our cider is fresh pressed on our rack and cloth press every fall while apples are at their peak. We offer single variety totes so you can blend them yourself as well as our own blends. This cider makes the perfect batch of Northern Michigan hard cider.
These cherries are picked at the peak of freshness, then pitted and frozen separately so they are much easier to handle. These are available in 40lb boxes. If you are looking for a whole fruit for brewing that is exceptionally easy to use, our IQF cherries are perfect! We offer both Montmorency and Balaton tart cherries.
