Prospect Hill Orchards-Cherries

Prospect Hill Orchards is a family owned and operated farm. It has been a Clarke family farm since 1817! Sweet and tart cherries are the first pick your own crop of the season. We usually open each year about June 15th, but the exact opening date is never certain until about 10 days before. This is because cherries are very sensitive to warm and cool days and nights. We grow both sweet and tart cherries: "white" Rainier cherries, dark red sweets and dark Hungarian tart cherries. To better accomodate our customers, we are open Friday, Saturday and Sunday for cherry season. The picking season usually lasts for 2 weekends for sweets and a third weekend for tart cherries.

Rainier Cherries
Rainier cherries are a true delicacy! They are the sweetest cherry variety and a favorite of everyone who tastes them, but they are so difficult to grow and bring to harvest! They are extremely sensitive to water, so if we get rain or even a thunderstorm as they are ripening the whole crop can be lost! Keep tabs on the weather or check our phone message to be sure they are available the weekend you plan to come to pick.
