Balsamic Pickled Cherries

The Balsamic vinegar from these Pickled Cherries takes on a sweet cherry flavor and makes a tasty vinaigrette to drizzle over grilled pork tenderloin.  The cherries are perfect for snacking, eating in a salad, piled on top of brined & grilled pork chops or over a toasted baguette slice topped with goat cheese (my favorite!).

Buy them ready made or try pickling them yourself with some fresh cherries.

Cherry Wood Dog Bones

Coming Soon!!!

Handmade cherry wood bones made from sustainably harvested solid pieces of Cherry Wood and soaked in Olive Oil to promote healthy chewing and clean teeth. Olive oil is also beneficial for the immune system and can help freshen breath.  Great for “destructive” dogs and wood-chewers!

Dried Cherry Stem Tea

To make, place dried stems (10 grams per 750 ml) in a tea pot and add boiling water. Allow to infuse for 3-4 minutes.  Drink once per day for a week.

 

Dried Cherry Stem Tea has many beneficial properties:

  • This diuretic infusion helps promote proper kidney function & prevents formation of stones.
  • Helps alleviate menstrual cramps.
  • Has depurative, laxative properties which are useful for fighting anemia, cellulitis, constipation, cystitis, diuresis, flu, lithiasis, obesity, and rheumatism.
  • Lowers Cholesterol

Apple Chips

Even though we only have three apple trees, mother nature provides far more than our family can eat.

Since we were already drying cherries, we decided to dry the surplus apples as well.

 

Here is another natural food with absolutely no additives or preservatives.  Our apple chips are slightly tart and crispy.

What a treat !!!    Good for you AND tastes great.  

Cherry Wood

What’s funny about the orchard is that not only does it produce cherries, but if you’re too nice to the trees, all they want to do is make wood.  We generate quite a bit of cherry wood every year that we sell as Smoker Bits, Pizza Oven Wood or Fire Wood.   Seasoned for at least a year, you’ll enjoy using cherry wood for it’s high heat, low ash properties.

Fresh Cherries

U-Pick – Bring the family together to share and experience nature.  Training & equipment are provided.  A cooler to haul your cherries back would be useful.

 

Picking is best early morning when it’s nice and cool.   Enjoy a picnic lunch afterwards in the glorious outdoors when it gets warmer.

We-Pick  – Let us do the picking for you.  Best if you give us a little notice.  Call and place your order.

In either case, we can store your cherries in our Walk-in Cooler – ready for pick-up when you’re ready to head home.

Sweet Dried Cherries

Our pitted dried sweet cherries are convenient, nutritious and taste great. Use as a snack, in baking or as a topper to salads, cereals or ice cream. Dried cherries store well at room temperature in an air-tight container. Extend storage time further by refrigerating or freezing.

No Sugar, Additives or Preservatives

Our cherries have NOT come in contact with any nuts, peanuts or oils and are 100% Gluten Free
