U-Pick Cherries - Orchard Open for 2016
COME AND PICK WHILE THE PICKING IS GREAT -- Our fruit has ripened a couple weeks earlier than usual and cherries likely won't last into late August like in previous years.
The St. Therese grounds feature several acres of Cherry Orchard, featuring several varieties of the great tasting, tart-but-sweet University of Saskatoon-developed Dwarf Sour Cherry.
We had previously announced earlier in the season that the cherry harvest looked poor, but our later cherries did not run into the issues that our early cherries did! Our later-ripening cherries are now ready for picking, and picking is looking great!
HOW TO U-PICK: Picking is self-pay and BYOB (ahem... that's bring your own 4L BUCKET). Come to the front door of St. Therese Institute at the north end of Main St. in Bruno, SK, and ask us for information on where to pick (during office hours) or follow the posted instructions and signs (after-hours).
COST: Cherries are $10 per 4L bucket (remember, BYOBucket)
Payment can be 1) made at the St. Therese office during office hours (M-F 8:30am-12pm, 1pm-5pm), or 2) deposited in a drop box outside the front door of St. Therese after hours.
HOURS: You can pick any time during daylight hours, 7 days per week. See note on payment above.
