Sweet and Sour Cherry Picking
SWEET CHERRY PICKING ((ESTIMATED ) BEGINS SATURDAY, JUNE 5. (Be sure to call ahead or email us before you come, as dates can change and/or supplies run out)
On a normal year, 56 varieties and a beautiful mountainside make Levering Orchard an amazing cherry-picking experience! But this is not a normal year. An April freeze killed most of the sweet cherry crop and one-third of the sour cherries. This year, it’s first come, first served for as long as the cherries last. And because of the freeze, we can not guarantee sales of already picked cherries this year.
SAFETY FIRST! In 2021, we are following CDC guidelines for safety. Also, if possible, bring your own sanitizer. If you don’t have any, we have hand-washing stations available. Masks are encouraged. Please keep children and pets near at hand. Also, while in the orchard and when purchasing fruit, we will be following guidelines for social distancing. THINK SAFETY!
Remember, conditions change and supplies can vary every day on a cherry orchard, so BE SURE to call or email us before you come.
PAYMENT: Cash or check only.
