Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. We have started our fall hours and they are Friday, Saturday, Sunday and Monday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. The orchard closes at 5:30. Please call during regular business hours for the up to the minute harvesting schedule.
Apple season is in full swing and we are offering over 10 varieties to choose from in the U-Pick orchard. Many all time favorites like Jonathan, Northern Spy, Red and Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Mutsu, Empire and more. The shuttle wagon is running on weekends 12-4 (weather permitting) and the hay wagon is out in the orchard to help get you to the varieties you are looking for.
We grow over 200 varieties of apples here at Tree-Mendus and I bet we have your favorite. Right now we have over 80 varieties available in our country store. Many are our heritage varieties some you have heard of and some maybe you haven't. A heritage variety would be one that is at least 100 years old. Maybe George Washington's favorite! This is a perfect time to plan an apple tasting party with your friends or family. We have so many to choose from with different taste, texture, color, and skin type. You may even want to include a paw paw (the Michigan Banana). For those of you who have never tried one, ask for a sample when you arrive.
In our country store we have more than 6 varieties of Pears available. Favorites like the Bosc, Bartlett, and Asian varieties. Check with us for your favorite.
We will have the waffle irons hot and ready to make you one of our famous cherry waffle boats. Served hot with our own Cherry Brite topping, whipped cream, and a cup of cider or coffee. That's something you won't want to miss.
If you can't make it to our farm we do ship apples, apple cider, or any of our great Tree-Mendus Fruit products right to your front door or to a friend for that special unique gift. Give us a call during regular business hours and we can help you!
If you missed the cherry harvesting season, don't worry, we have filled our freezers with freshly picked and pitted tart cherries in quart and 10lb containers available anytime. We will even ship them to you if you wish.
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.
Nancy is 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!
