A Montana Cherry Orchard
Our family-owned orchards are located in the northwest corner of Montana, in the beautiful Flathead Valley. We specialize in fresh sweet cherries, selling wholesale and retail through our warehouse located 10 miles south of Bigfork. Other products that we sell are canned cherries, jams, dried cherries, cherry chocolate fudge, cherry cider, and a variety of wine.
Fresh cherries are available in July and August from our orchards located in both Washington and Montana.
We grow several different varieties of sweet cherries including Bing, Tieton, Lambert (similar to Bing), Lapin (a later cherry), and Rainier (light yellow with red blush). We also grow a limited amount of pie cherries (sour). Our cherries are sold by the pound or in 20lb boxes.
As a complement to our fresh cherries, we offer a selection of delicious, homemade-quality products made with cherries
grown from our orchards.
The Bowman family has been growing famous Flathead sweet cherries since the 1920’s when two brothers, Adam and Eby Bowman, planted the original family orchards on the East Shore of Flathead Lake. They cleared the timbered land with the teams of horses, dynamited large rocks and cultivated the ground (with horses) in preparation for growing fruit trees.
