Cherry Scorpaciatta- Feasting on Cherries in Season

This is a cherry farm that is 10 minutes away from where I live. It's June again and the cherries are ripe for the picking. It has become an annual thing to do in the Summer. It seems like they have ripen sooner this year and they are surprisingly sweet and crunchy despite the rainy Spring. This orchard has 3500 trees with two varieties of cherry namely Bing and Rainer in a 25-acre land. We have so much fun 
going from tree to tree selecting the sweetest cherries. The choice cherries in your bucket are weighed on the way out but the ones in your tummy is on the house. Here are some pictures for you to enjoy. 












These are ready to be made into juice, jam or pie as we always enjoy them.

  3. Gosh, how lucky can you get, living so close to a cherry farm? The closest I can get to picking cherries is from the shelves in the grocers. Sigh ...

  4. Beautiful pictures. I've just come back from a fruit farm - no cherries, but raspberries that are a million miles from the perfect chilly berries from the supermarket. Heaven isn't it!

    But one of my dreams would be to see these beautiful cherry trees.

    Thank you for everything
