Weekly Crop Updates

July 20, 2014 

We are all SOLD OUT of Sweet Cherries for our season!

Wonderful yellow Shiro plums are now available for u-pick.  They have super sweet flesh, and are $1/lb.

Lodi/Transparent apples are now ready to be picked! These tart, white, Russian apples are perfect for applesauce or a pie.  Just $1/lb.


Do you have a hankering for a cherry pie?  Then you will be so happy to know we have...PIE CHERRIES for sale!  They are $2.00/lb.  Come ready to load your buckets and bring home some nice juicy ones. 


PLEASE BRING PLASTIC CONTAINERS TO BRING THESE CHERRIES HOME IN AS THEY ARE VERY VERY JUICY!!!

Please do not cut or break branches. That is next year’s fruit and you are destroying the production of next years’ cherries.

Please bring boots and another pair of shoes to wear home as the rain will make the fields muddy. Children should have boots.

Beware of the squirrel and gopher holes in the ground. They are hard to see and contribute to the uneven ground.

We cannot allow individuals with walkers or canes in the orchard as it is too treacherous with the holes and uneven ground.

This year there will be times we are closed due to fruit not being ripe or unavailable. Should we sell out of fruit, we may close the orchard early.  Please call first before you come out to prevent disappointment in finding we are closed. Some of the crops are very small this year and we will close until we have sufficient crops to pick. The phone line may be more reliable and up-to-date than the website.

Please bring containers to take your fruit home with you.  

PLEASE do not come to the orchard in the afternoon if it is too hot! The orchard is really too hot to pick fruit and we discourage you from coming when the temperature is above 85 degrees in the afternoons.

PLEASE bring containers to take your fruit home in, especially the pie cherries. They are juicy and need to be in containers that will keep them from leaking juice all over the car.

PLEASE CALL EACH DAY BEFORE COMING OUT TO PICK FOR ANY CHANGES IN OUR SCHEDULE (503)625-7705.  IF WE RUN OUT OF FRUIT TO PICK WE WILL CLOSE EARLY!!!

IN OTHER WORDS,
