Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. We have begun our fall hours and they are Friday through Monday and our hours are from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. Please note the orchard closes at 5:30 Michigan time. (Eastern)
Our U-Pick for peaches had ended but we still have some available in our country store while supplies last. We also have Pears, Plums and Apples brought in daily fresh from the farm.
Here at Tree-Mendus we grow over 200 varieties of apples. Many date back over 150 years ago. I bet we have your favorite. Right now available for U-Pick are apple varieties like Gala, Empire, Cortland, Macintosh and the popular Honeycrisp and more. In our country store you will find many more varieites available as our heritage apple selection is coming in nicely.
If you are missing some of our Tree-Mendus Fruit favorites we can ship them to you at any time. Available are Sweet & Tart Cherry Juice, Dark, Heritage or Cherry Apple Cider, and our freshly frozen tart cherries in 10lb and quart size containers. Just send us an e-mail or give us a call. We aso have many apple gift boxs we can ship as well.
The results are in for the Annual International Cherry Pit-Spitting Championship always
held here at Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm the first Saturday of July. Save the date for the 44th Competition held on July 1st, 2017. We
will have qualifying rounds from 10 a.m. to 12 p.m. with the top qualifying spitters to compete at 1:00 p.m. This is a family
event you won't want to miss.
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.
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!
