2017 Cherry Season Has Come to a Close

This past Sunday—June 18, 2017—marked the last day of a successful cherry season. This year we opened on May 26, giving us almost 3 sweet weeks of picking. Every year, picking season is a little different—last year, we opened for just one weekend. You can imagine our excitement for a plentiful harvest this time around!

Cheryl G. shared this review on Google:

“Lovely place to spend an afternoon, it’s off the beaten track but the scenery is breathtaking and the fruit is delicious! Sure, it might be a little more expensive than buying cherries at the grocery store but the taste is unparalleled and the location is so serene. There are some smaller trees so the little ones can also pick their own and portapotties on site. There are some lovely places to stop off nearby in Nelson County and make a day trip of it. Highly recommend making the trip out here. Also recommend buying more cherries than you think you need as you’ll find yourself eating handfuls all the time, they’re that good!”

So, thanks to everyone who came out! Keep scrolling for a few of the MANY wonderful photos that you posted to Instagram!

If you weren’t able to make it to Spring Valley, be sure and visit our sister orchards Chiles Peach Orchard and Carter Mountain Orchard for fresh fruit and fun.
