Pick-Your-Own Cherries

Cherries don’t have a season, they have a moment.
— Old fruit grower saying

UPDATE: Cherries are finished for 2017 – we had a bad year with lots of harsh weather – sign up to get notified about next year! 

From 2 to 5 weeks every June/July, Cherries come along. Exactly which weeks? Well, that changes every year! Usually starting around the beginning of July and lasting 3 weeks. The safest bet? Sign-up for a "freshness alert" and we'll let you know just before they're ready, and you can get them first!

Payment

It's a 200+ year old farm, so no credit/debit cards, and we can't help you with your Air-Mile collection either. Of course, Cash works great here.

Pre-Picked

Love cherries but hate picking? No problem. Drop by and pick up a pre-picked basket in any size for 5$ extra. Also good for a gift if you couldn't pick too many extra. Bring your own container if you can!

 

 

 

Buses

Bringing a busload? No problem, just contact us ahead of time.

 

Picking

We'll show you how and give you tips to pick fast if you like. You'll have your own tree for your family to pick, and the branches are low enough for kids to pick too. Picking a basket can take 10 minutes to an hour depending on how fast you are!

Picking Tips

  1. Leave the stem on. Cherries last longer with the stems on!
  2. Use a motion like flipping a light switch to get the stem off the tree cleanly. 
  3. Don't break the branches, they're next years cherries!
  4. Fill your hands with cherries before you bring them down to the basket (way faster...like a pro). 

Clothing

It's usually warm during July, so wear light clothes that you won't cry over if they get cherry stained. Also, wear shoes you don't mind getting a little dirt/dust on. It's an orchard after all!

Facilities

We've only got port-potties, so we suggest stopping at Gateway Niagara right at the Casablanca exit from the highway, grab a snack, and come on over!
