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 in the 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.  We'll be the early birds next year!  The one I got was pretty good, though, so look for an earlier start to our season next year.  

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".  This past year we had a couple of very cold cold snaps and our peaches didn't like it much.  The cherries did fine and we saw no loss of trees.  Later in the season we'll have Lapins and they are huge this year!!!
