We are a family owned orchard that offers tree ripened, full flavored fruit in the form of concentrate, juice 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.
We actively grow 180 acres of Montmorency tart cherries and put them all into our concentrate. We let them hang on the tree until they are at their peak ripeness and highest Brix content. All our cherries are then custom pressed, making a high quality concentrate like no other! Read more about our flagship product here.

This cherry is slightly sweeter and darker in color than the Montmorency tart cherry. Brewers love this cherry for its color and unique sweet-tart flavor profile.

This concentrate was made with all McIntosh apples. All the apples were hand picked and the concentrate was made with the entire apple, rather than the bi-product of peels and cores like most apple concentrates.

This summer, we took tree ripened Balaton tart cherries as well as sweet cherries and pitted them in house. We then bulk froze these in 5 gallon pails (40lbs. of Balaton cherries/pail and 35 lbs. of sweet cherries/pail). These are a great option for brewers of all sizes and can be shipped ground!
Our cider is pressed at the peak of Northern Michigan apple season. We are now offering a balanced blend of both tart and sweet apples that we have frozen in 250 gallon totes. Reserve your cider now!
These Individually Quick Frozen 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.
