This one speaks for itself. The cherries are about 10 days away from being ready to harvest. They are now turning from green to a white-pink colour. This tells us to get the yellow balloons and the bird squawkers out to keep the birds from eating all the cherries before we get to pick them. It also give us a little time to get our picking and sorting supplies ready for the year. This is my favourite time of year to work out in the orchard. When you can pass by a tree and grab a handful fresh fruit as a snack while you work, it is the best place in the world to work! It reminds me of why I love living and working on a farm. Keep an eye on our website Hipplefarms.ca so you can be up-to-date on when we will have cherries for sale. Cherry harvest usually corresponds with the opening on our road side fruit stand. Have a great fruit eating season!
