Welcome to Tree-Mendus Fruit Farm, reporting on what's going on here at the orchard. Our farm market will be opening for the season on Wednesday June 8th, 2016. Our hours will be Wednesday through Monday from 10:00 am to 6:00 pm. We are closed on Tuesdays throughout the harvesting season.
Right now we are busy trimming the orchards and making plans for the 2016 season. We have many new trees ordered for spring planting and it is just around the corner. This winter season has been very unpredictable with the temperatures varying from 30-40 degrees one week then down to the 10-20 degrees the next week. So far this does not seem to be confusing the trees but we will know more when it is blossomtime in April. We will also learn at that time if the crops will be early, on regular time, or late. Keep posted and we will let you know what to expect this season.
New this year, we will be offering orchard tours (with reservation) on Saturdays and Sundays through the month of August with no minimum guests. Tour dates will be Aug 6th, 7th, 13th, 14th, 20th, 21st, 27th, and 28th at 12:00 and 2:00. Our narrated orchard Tour will be about 45 min through the Tree-Mendus farm and orchard on our Folkswagon or shuttle (weather permitting). The cost is $10.00 per person with 5 yr and under free. Call now for reservations.
The first harvesting fruit of the season will be Sweet Cherries around mid-June with Tart Cherries and apricots to follow. Check back with us for beginning U-Pick harvesting dates.
If you are missing some of our Tree-Mendus Fruit favorites we can ship them to you at any time. Available are Sweet & Tart Cherry Juice, Dark, Heritage or Cherry Apple Cider, and our freshly frozen tart cherries in 10lb and quart size containers. Just send us an e-mail or give us a call.
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.
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. If you wish to be signed up for this, just e-mail us at email@example.com. We will be sending these e-mails only when there is an update on the season fruits or specials. You can also check us out on FaceBook. If you receive our newsletter in late May, some of this information will be in there, but up to the minute details on harvesting and added specials will only be sent via e-mail. You can call us anytime for more information, or check here for the Ripe-N-Ready report.
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!
