Today we’re digging some MontMOREncy tart cherry trees here in our south west Michigan nursery today. We will sort them out by size before loading the biggest ones in the trailer.

Heard you on the radio the other morning about covid testing workers and the "labor camps". I would love to be able to hear that again - share with people. Also I would like to know what the Directive or Order number this is. (I feel for all of the farmers. You guys are great and do not deserve to be treated like you don't take care of all of all of the people who work for you.)
Gluten Free Cherry Stuffed Scones, made with local Cherry Ke cherries! I love buying your cherries to freeze and use in my baked good all year long... Thank you! 🙂 #shoplocal #cherries #puremichigan #torchriviera
