Answers to some questions that you may have about our Orchard and cherries:
Q: When are Flathead Cherries available?

Q: Do you ship cherries?
A: No, we do not ship fresh cherries.
Q: Can I freeze fresh cherries?
A: Yes. Remove stems, wash cherries and pit if desired. Place cherries in a plastic freezer bag and freeze. Cherries can also be individually frozen on a cookie sheet for 2 hours before placing in freezer bags.
Q: Why do cherries grow around Flathead Lake and not in other areas of Montana?
A: Flathead Lake is such a large lake that it helps to keep our winter temperatures mild and even near the lake. However, there was a freeze in 1989 that killed most of the cherry trees around the lake.
Q: How many cherries do I need to make a pie?
A: Depending on the size of your pie dish, it takes about three pounds of cherries to make a pie. Don’t forget to pit them.
Q: How long do fresh cherries last?
A: If kept dry and refrigerated, they should last 10 days to two weeks. If keeping them in a cooler, do not place cherries near ice or anything frozen.
