Pick Your Own Cherries/Blueberries
Tart cherries, also known as sour, or pie cherries, are best known as the key ingredient in desserts. They are also delicious in main courses, salads, jams & jellies and beverages. Tart cherries are seldom sold fresh in your local grocery store, so consider yourself lucky if you live near a cherry orchard!! Montmorency is the most popular of the sour cherry varieties, providing 95% of the sour cherries on the market. This cherry has been cultivated and available for U-Pick at Hicks Orchard for more than a century!
We grow 4 different varieties of blueberries to provide us with successive ripening that will span mid July through the end of August. Blueberries are fun and easy to pick, and kids love them. The are also a healthy food, full of antioxidants and anthocyanins which occur in foods with deep blue and red colors. Many recipes include blueberries from breakfast, lunch and dinner to dessert. Blueberries also freeze well so you may enjoy them all winter! Another great fact about Hicks Orchard Blueberries....our berries are NOT sprayed! However, we do recommend washing all fruit before eating it. Most of all, picking blueberries is a fun, relaxing way to spend a summer day with your family.
