Hi Cherry Pickers,
We will be opening for picking on Saturday, June 4th! We now have ripe Brooks which are huge and sweet. The Bings and Rainiers are NOT yet ripe. Because the weather has stayed cool these last couple of weeks, we will open this weekend for limited hours only. On both Saturday and Sunday, June 4th and 5th we will be open from 8am to 2pm–so come early for the best pickings!
Because our orchard is so large, we have cherries ripening in different sections every day. We carefully watch the cherries and send you to where the best, ripest cherries are the day that you come to pick. Check out our picking suggestions on the web site, www.upickcherries.com. Things like: wear comfortable, preferably closed toed shoes, wear a hat, bring sunscreen. These suggestionss will make your day more enjoyable. We do sell water at the sales stand but you are welcome to bring drinks and snacks into the orchard. We just ask that you don’t leave trash in the orchard. We pride ourselves on having a clean, beautiful farm for all of our patrons to enjoy.
That’s it for now. We’d love for you to forward this email to any of your friends who might also like to come pick cherries. Tell them to sign up for our Cherry Alerts. For last minute updates, check our Cherry Hotline: 661 270-1356. We look forward to seeing you at the farm!
