Our strawberries, cherries, June berries, blueberries, currants and raspberries are picked out for the season. WE NOW HAVE ANOTHER CROP OF RHUBARB READY. Our late red and champaign raspberries will be ready around mid-August. There will be lots and they’re looking great!
We are also picking green beans, beets, zucchinis, onions, and cucumbers. Large quantities of pickling cucumbers available. Please call ahead with quantity (pounds) desired. Other vegetables for US to pick for you when ready are tomatoes, peppers, sweet corn, carrots, potatoes, etc. Mairi sweet corn (de-lish-see-oh-so) will be ready in 10 days to 2 weeks. WE usually pick the vegetables; however, PLEASE ASK if you are interested in picking something. Watch the website.
We’re also getting our store ready for the apple season. As usual, we’ll have lots of goodies and gifts. New this year are all natural, no preservatives dog treats from the Canine Crunchery made right in Rockford. If you’re desperate, you could even eat one – they’re really not bad (I did and I now bark when I want another one.)
Some sights have our hours as Mon, thru Sat. 9 to 6 and Sun. 10 to 6. Those are our fall apple season hours. OUR SUMMERS HOURS ARE MON. THRU SAT. 9 A.M. to 5 P.M. and SUNDAY 10 A.M. TILL 5 P.M. We may close one day a week after berry season for some R & R.
Watch the website – we’ll let you know.
The Orchard is very close to I-90, Cherryvale Mall, Elliot Golf Course, Volcano Falls, Magic Waters Water Park, Midway Village, Sportcore, Anderson Gardens and several hotels, motels, restaurants, etc. The town of Cherry Valley is very quaint with 3 restaurants and Bauman Park with a playground and nice lake with a walkway around it you can ride bikes on.
