Hi Cherry Pickers,
Great news! Cherry picking season for 2104 is fast approaching. Many of the cherries are already the size of grapes! Because it was a pretty mild winter, most of the trees have lots and lots of cherries! This year we will have plenty of local, raw honey too.
We expect to open some time around the end of May but aren’t yet sure of our opening date. It depends how quickly the cherries ripen. Some of the cherries are already turning yellow and even a little red! We’ll be adding pictures to the web site, www.upickcherries.com to show you the progress of the cherries ripening. We will post the web site and send out an email alert as soon as we know our opening date–when the cherries will be ripe and perfect for picking!
Check out our cherry picking tips, rules of the orchard, as well as recipes and other valuable information on the web site.
The orchard phone message–The Cherry Hotline– will be updated with up to the minute information as the season progresses. It’s always a good idea to call before heading our way just to be sure there are no changes in our picking schedule. This is especially true toward the end of the season. The number is 661 270-1356.
We’re getting excited! Keep watching our web site. We’ll post updates and also email you as we know more.
Thanks so much and we look forward to seeing you at the cherry farm this year!
