The Sweet Cherry season is 2 weeks early this year thanks to the very warm weather in April and May. We have Dark and White Sweet Cherries and boy are they sweet. The sun has really made a difference in the taste and flavor. You are able to purchase these at the Farm Stand on Lincoln Road or Pick them right from the trees in the 2 acre orchard. One of the best features of our You Pick is NO LADDERS. Everything is from the ground and the branches are even low enough for the children to reach. See you soon!

This years Strawberry season will be an unusual one. The early warm weather of April and Early May brought the plants into bloom sooner than is typical. Then the long hours of freezing temperatures during several nights in Mid-May froze many of the blossoms (despite the row covers that were used to protect them). What did this do? It caused all the early blossoms and any baby berries to fall off. So most of the strawberries available will be from the later blossoms.
So what started as a bountiful very early season is now going to be a short later season.
On a positive note the fruit is really sweet because of all the sun and heat we have had.
But don’t wait too long ……… the season will be over before you know it!
