Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. Our fall market hours are in effect, they are Friday through Monday from 10-6. The orchard closes at 5:30, so please arrive early enough to complete your harvesting by 6:00.
Its apple harvesting time and here at Tree-Mendus we grow over 200 varieties. Right now for U-Pick we are offering Cortland, McIntosh, Holiday, Empire and more. There will always be new varieties becoming available in our store and for U-Pick as they become ripe for harvesting. Apples love the cool weather, it sweetens them up!
Our Farm market is full of fresh picked plums, pears, and many of our Heritage Apple varieties. At any given time this fall you could find as many as 30 varieties of apples available. Be sure to ask for a sample when you arrive. Along with our fresh picked fruit we also have a large variety of jams, jellies, local honey and syrup and other unique items in our country store.
Bill will be selecting apples weekly to put our special blend of apple cider together. We will be bringing it in to our country market freshly pressed for you to enjoy a cup of it hot or cold. We will even have 1/2 gal and gal size for you to take home. We offer Dark, Heritage, and Cherry Cider. All made with our own special blend of Tree-Mendus Fruit's apples.
We will have the waffle irons hot and ready to make you one of our famous Cherry Boat Waffles that comes with a cup of apple cider or coffee, and Gary will have some of his pie squares too. Our waffles can be topped with apples, real maple syrup, and of corse, our own Cherry Brite Topping and whipped cream. Sounds yummy!!!
The results are in for our 41st International Cherry Pit-Spitting Championship. It was a Tree-Mendus day with Tart Cherry harvesting and over 120 visitors going through our qualifying rounds. The results are Spittacular!!

When planning your summer events Tree-Mendus Fruit has accommodations for your family to make your visit more enjoyable. We offer a private "valley" picnic area for large groups, family reunions, or any gathering you may have. The valley comes with a pavilion and picnic tables to accommodate any size group. Call for reservations. For your fall visit you may want to consider renting an apple tree from our family tree orchard. This is a private orchard to "Rent-A-Tree" customers only. Our "Family Rent-A Tree" program allows families to "rent" an apple tree for the season. We take care of it; all you have to do is pick it! Bring the family and enjoy a picnic under your very own tree. Choose from apple varieties like, Mutsu, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Rome, Jonathan, and Holiday.
