Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. Our country store is open for the 2018 season. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org. Feel free to message us on Facebook.
As many of you know we have had quite a cool spring and it seems at this point we may be a week to 10 days behind the average harvesting dates. The blossoms were plentiful and the bees were working hard on the warm days. You can see some of the pictures of different fruits in blossom on our Instagram #treemendusfruit or on Facebook page.
Our Sweet Cherry harvesting has begun! Remember to arrive early enough to finish your harvesting as our orchard closes at 5:30. Tart Cherries should be ready in early July but be sure to call ahead before you travel to be sure they are ready. There are a few apricots coming in as well but for now it is a limited supply in our country store. As we get closer to July we will have more available.
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 so please stay in touch because we know many of our guests drive long distances to get some Tree-Mendus Fruit!
Mark your calendar for the annual International Cherry Pit-Spitting Championship held right here at Tree-Mendus fruit on the first Saturday of July. This year it will be 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 email@example.com. 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
