Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. Our hours are Wednesday- Monday from 10 am to 6 pm (during harvest the orchard closes at 5:30 pm). We are closed on Tuesday. If you need to contact us call during regular business hours or you can e-mail us at email@example.com or message us on Facebook.
Sweet and Tart cherry harvesting has ended for the season. You may find a few in the country store but most of the fresh cherries are over. If you missed them and you would still like some tart cherries, we have them washed, sorted, and pitted in our freezer. You will find 10lb and quart containers available.
Mother Nature is at it's best here at Tree-Mendus and she has sped up the ripening process on all tree fruits this season. We have started the Peach harvesting and the U-Pick is now open. We are still recovering from the 2013 winter kill on our peach trees and we are planting new orchards every year. Some are starting to produce but you may find we don't have all the varieties we used to in production. We are a week or two ahead of schedule. Normally we get the early Flamin Fury varieties in late July but they are moving right along and the Jersey Dawn are now ready. The Red Havens will be ready very soon.
You will still find a few apricots in the Country store but most are gone. With a 90% crop loss we didn't have many this year. However, the plum varieties are coming in nicely and they are also available in the Country Store. We don't have U-Pick on Plums. You may even find a few of the apple varieties are beginning!!
The results are in for the 44th International cherry Pit-Spitting Championship.
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.
We are continually updating our listing for "e-news". This will be any updates on special events, harvesting, or fruit special's you may want to know about. If you wish to be signed up for this, just e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org. We will be sending these e-mails only when there is an update on the season fruits or specials. You can also check us out on FaceBook. If you receive our newsletter in late May, some of this information will be in there, but up to the minute details on harvesting and added specials will only be sent via e-mail. You can call us anytime for more information, or check here for the Ripe-N-Ready report.
Did you know in addition to U-Pick and we-pick fruit in season, Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm accommodates company picnics, group orchard tours and country dinners by reservation. Our recreation area is a private picnic area nestled in a valley surrounded by trees for privacy. A pavilion is also available in case of rain. So plan for next spring or summer now. Call during regular office hours to schedule your event.
Thanks for visiting and have a Tree-Mendus Day!
