What are Flathead Cherries?

 Flathead Cherries are the most delicious cherries in Montana, of course!! 
        And we've got them!!

Well, actually... there really is no such thing as a "Flathead Cherry" any more than there is a "Washington Cherry."  It's just the area in which the cherry is grown.  Flathead cherries are grown in abundance around Flathead Lake mostly by family farmers like us.  Flathead Cherries, Inc sells Vanns, Lamberts, Rainiers and Lapins and expects to have some earlier and some later cherries in the years to come.  We love the flavor of Lamberts and bring that to you at Farmers' Markets early to mid season!!!  Lapins are a later season cherry that many grocery stores carry due to the extended shelf life, and we bring them to you as soon as they are ripe.  Our younger trees are growing a little more every year and we hope to have a great crop of Rainier cherries in a couple more years.    

Our orchard is in Yellow Bay - an area about halfway between Bigfork and Polson on the east shore of Flathead Lake.  Flathead Lake is huge and moderates temperatures year-round to assist in the production of a superbly sweet "Flathead Cherry".  Our apples really liked the cold snaps we had last winter, and we are hoping that our peach trees - which grew exponentially this summer will give you a taste of Montana Peach in 2015.  We are also showing exponential growth with our almond trees!!  Hopefully we will be able to visit your town with more than just cherries in the coming years.
