Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. Our country store is open and our hours are Wednesday through Monday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. The U-Pick orchard closes at 5:30 so be sure to arrive early enough to finish your harvesting by then. We are closed on Tuesdays. If you need to contact us call during regular office hours (269-782-7101) or you can e-mail us at email@example.com. Feel free to message us on Facebook.
Sweet Cherry harvesting had ended. Our croud over the fourth of July week was heavy and they have picked the bottoms of our trees clean. We will have some available in our country store but the U-Pick for sweets is closed.
Tart Cherries continue for U-Pick and already picked in the country store through July 23rd. You will have to check back then to see what our supply is. If you are wanting a large quantity or to have them pitted and ready for you it is best to call ahead. The crop has been Tree-Mendus and the different varieties keep ripening. Don't forget that we have pitting facilities to wash sort and have your tart cherries pitted before you go home. It is always a good idea to bring a cooler to carry your fresh cherries home.
In 2017 we had a 90% crop loss on apricots but you will be happy to hear the trees look Tree-Mendus this year and we are harvesting them now. We do not offer U-Pick on apricots but there is always a fresh picked supply available for you in the country store.
We keep a close eye on the orchards to give our best guess on when harvesting dates will be here but sometimes she, "Mother Nature" changes that up for us and she has done that many times fo far this summer. Please stay in touch because we know many of our guests drive long distances to get some Tree-Mendus Fruit!
The Results are in for the International Cherry Pit-Spitting Championship held right here at Tree-Mendus fruit on the first Saturday of July. This year it was held on July 7th. Qualifying rounds begin at 10 am until noon with the top spitters and championship to begin at 1:00 pm. Its a fun day for all ages. Come and test your "Spitability"
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
