ARE THE CHERRIES LOCAL?
From the cherries in the pies to the cherries in the products, many are from our local farms! We happily represent Cherries from across the nation during the National Cherry Festival.

WHERE CAN I PICK CHERRIES?
Traverse City is the cherry capital of the world for a pretty good reason. Our land is rich and our cherry farms are abundant. With so many farms to choose from, it's easy to get an authentic cherry orchard experience during your visit and take home fresh cherries that you and your family pick yourself.

Our friends at Taste the Local Difference curated this list of farms that you can visit during the National Cherry Festival to pick cherries from the orchard. It doesn't get any fresher than this!
