Orchard Cherry Picking


What a difference a year makes!

Mother nature was not so kind to the fruit crop in 2012.

Early high temps followed by series of freezes caused farmers to lose most of their tart cherries.

This year things are much different at Lehman's Orchard!

They'll be open Monday for you to pick the cherries.

"You know I think it's tradition," said Farm Manager Steve Lecklider. "I think they like the fruit, but they also like the experience of coming out to the farm and seeing where their local produce is grown, how it's grown, they meet the members of the family."

Again, they say there's an excellent crop of cherries this year!

You can start picking them at nine in the morning on Monday!
