Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. We will be opening for the season on Friday June 2nd for the 2017 season. Right now our office hours are Monday - Friday from 10am to 2pm. Feel free to call anytime and leave a message and we will get back to you as soon as we can. You can also e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org or message us on Facebook.
Spring has sprung on the farm and we are busy finishing up the trimming of the fruit trees and getting the orchards ready for the harvesting season. Bill, Glen and Cindy have been planting new orchards of peaches, nectarines and plums. From a new planting it takes 3-5 years to start harvesting from the new plantings. Every year we plant new orchards and remove old ones to keep the farm at it's peak for production. We are still planting to recover from the winter kill on our peach trees from the 2012-2013 winter.
Our harvesting season will begin in mid-June with Sweet Cherries and then soon after the Tart Cherries will be ready. From mid-July we will have apricots and late July we will start with some early peaches. Peaches will continue through August and before you know it we will have the early apples and plums ready. Mother nature has a way to speed up or slow down the ripening process so be sure if you plan a trip to Tree-Mendus Fruit you call ahead or check here on our Ripe-N-Ready report for the up to date harvesting report.
We have lots of Tree-Mendus goodies available for you right now that we can ship to you if you don't want to wait for the harvesting season. Items like, apple cider (regular, heritage, and cherry available), frozen tart cherries, (washed, sorted, pitted, and frozen), and Tart Cherry Juice (qt, 1/2 gal, gal available). Don't forget some of our extra special items that may be great for gift giving like Apple Butter, Apricot & Cherry Jam, and our famous Grandma Zindles Pickles and Cherry Brite Topping. We can ship them for you anytime!
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 Day!
