Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. We have started our fall market hours, they are Friday through Monday 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. 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.
Fall is here and the available apple variety list is getting longer. Here at Tree-Mendus we grow over 200 varieties of apples, many are heritage dating back to the 1700's. We offer many varieties in our country store if you don't wish to pick your own, but if you do, we are now picking Gala, Red & Golden Delicious, Holiday, Jonathan, Empire, Cortland, and more. Even everyone's favorite the Honeycrisp apple is available.
Our Tree-Mendus crop of plums are in the country store as well. The old time Italian and Damson varieties are available in the country store. You will also find Bosc, Golden Russet and other varieties of Pears available already picked.
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 so 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 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.
