Pick Your Own Tart Cherries on Saturday, July 26 starting at 9:00 AM until picked out.

NO EARLY SALES! Picking starts at 9:00 AM! Rain or shine. No reservations. Usually we are picked out by noon.

$2.10 per pound, 20 cents per pound extra for pitting.

Please bring containers to pick into and to carry your cherries home in. Pre-weigh your empty containers before you start picking.

The EUBANK cherry is bright red and more tart, and the BALATON cherry is dark red and slightly sweeter. Unfortunately the BALATON cherry is not as winter hardy, and the fruit buds did not survive the colder than normal winter, so there are no BALATON cherries this year.

This year's day is dedicated in loving memory of Bill Eubank who passed last year just after the Pick Your Own day. Our EUBANK cherry trees are propagated from the original tree on his family's farm.

No pets; please keep your dogs at home where they are cooler and more comfortable.

The gnats are bothersome this year due to the record rainfall, so we recommend wearing a head scarf and/or wearing bug repellant.

Also available starting Saturday, July 19, Pick Your Own red and black Currants by appointment 715-778-5881. $2.75/lb. You can pick currants on the PYO Cherry day without an appt.

The long, colder-than-normal winter and cooler, wetter-than-normal June has impacted our fruit crops this year.

We now have a Facebook page for Maple Leaf Orchard. You can like us and receive the updates as soon as they are posted.

APPLES: Some apple varieties had smaller than normal fruit set, but others are doing well. With 30+ varieties, we will have plenty of apple flavors for everyone in your family!

Visit Mark at the St. Paul Farmers Market on Saturday mornings May - October.

We will be opening Labor Day Monday, Sept. 1 for the fall season and then will be open every day from 10 AM - 5 PM. In addition to Pick Your Own apples on the weekends this fall, we will still have apples available in the shop every day, plus we will have Pick Your Own grapes, raspberries, and pumpkins in our 5 acre patch. Enjoy a fun family experience with our weekend hayrides to Pick Your Own apples (PYO varieties determined by ripeness and availability). Our bakery is open on weekends with delicious apple cider donuts (Saturdays and Sundays), apple pie (Fridays and Saturdays) and apple crisp (Sundays). Our fresh apple cider is the best! Thank you to all of our loyal customers! See you soon.....

Thank you,
