Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. Our Farm market will have winter hours in effect until June 5th. They are office hours Monday - Friday from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm. If you need any of our Tree-Mendus Fruit products, please call during operating hours or e-mail us anytime. We will change to our summer hours on Friday June 5th.
We are looking forward to a bountiful season here at Tree-Mendus and right now we are getting ready. Cindy is checking all of our young trees for winter damage and removing the tree wraps while Glen and Bill are busy trimming the trees. Gary is doing some trimming too although it won't be long before he heads over to the market to do some spring cleaning and stocking up for those busy summer months.
Soon, when the soil is ready to be worked, we will start planting this year's new orchards full of nursery stock. We plant 500-1000 new trees every year to help keep the farm productive. We have grafted some new trees to go in the nursery this year and will be transplanting the old nursery into orchards or pots to sell at the market. We start every spring with many varieties of cherries, peaches, apples, and more available for you to purchase to take home to have your own fruiting tree.
If you're looking for some Tree-Mendus Fruit products now, we have many items available that we can ship to you. Our freshly pressed Apple Cider, Heritage Apple Cider, and Cherry Cider along with our Sweet and Tart Cherry Juice. 100% natural and made only with our own Tree-Mendus Cherries, our cherry juice comes in Quart, 1/2 gallon and gallon sizes. Tree-Mendus tart cherries are available in a quart or 10lb container already picked and pitted ready for that fresh cherry pie or to flavor your favorite smoothie. You can call or e-mail anytime to make arrangements to have some shipped to you or with an appointment, you can pick some up. All available anytime and made with only our own Tree-Mendus Fruit grown here on the farm.
When planning your summer events Tree-Mendus Fruit has accommodations for your family to make your visit more enjoyable. We offer a private "valley" picnic area for large groups, family reunions, or any gathering you may have. The valley comes with a pavilion and picnic tables to accommodate any size group. Call for reservations. For your fall visit you may want to consider renting an apple tree from our family tree orchard. This is a private orchard to "Rent-A-Tree" customers only. Our "Family Rent-A Tree" program allows families to "rent" an apple tree for the season. We take care of it; all you have to do is pick it! Bring the family and enjoy a picnic under your very own tree. Choose from apple varieties like, Mutsu, Jonagold, Golden Delicious, Rome, Jonathan, and Holiday.
Mark your calandars for the 42nd International Cherry Pit-Spitting Championship. Held right here at Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm every year on the first Saturday of July. This year our Pit- Spit will be on July 4th. This event is free of charge and is for every age! Qualifying rounds start at 10:00 am and end at 12:00 pm. All of the top spitters in their designated division will then compete in the championship rounds that begin at 1:00. Join us for a "siptacular" event.
Nancy is continually updating our listing for "e-news". This will be any updates on special events, harvesting, or fruit special's you may want to know about.

Did you know in addition to U-Pick and we-pick fruit in season, Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm accommodates company picnics, group orchard tours and country dinners by reservation. Our recreation area is a private picnic area nestled in a valley surrounded by trees for privacy. A pavilion is also available in case of rain. So plan for next spring or summer now. Call during regular office hours to schedule your event.
Thanks for visiting and have a Tree-Mendus Day!
