June 30: Cherry Saturday @ Tuttles

Cherry Saturday at Tuttles

{June 30, 2018}

As always…we want to bring you the best cherries possible for this day – this is our best guess of a date – but this is subject to change…always check here for the latest updates.

It’s a day to celebrate sweet cherries!  What’s a better way to celebrate 4th of July weekend than with a cherry pie.

Here’s some of what we have planned:

Farm Store: 

We will be getting LOTS of fresh SWEET cherries from Michigan to have available this Saturday (available 9am until sold out…should have cherries most of the day….we order a LOT).  They will be available in pints, quarts, and 2lb containers. We will know what varieties we will have closer to that day, but we typically have sweet reds and rainier cherries.

Sweet Cherries

These will be sweet cherries.  In the world of cherries, SWEET = eating  TART = baking.

If you are interested in fresh TART cherries, we may have a very few available by the quart on cherry day, but we are bringing in 10lb containers of tart cherries the third or fourth week of July (cherry day is a bit too early for tart cherries).  Click here to order TART CHERRIES.  These will be already pitted (yeah!) and will be just cherries with nothing added so you can bake with them easily.

OTHER CHERRY ITEMS:

We are also partnering with Seaquist Orchards in Door County Wisconsin to provide us with lots of great cherry products including cherry pie filling, cherry jam, and cherry salsa!  They are an amazing family farm we visited last year, and we are excited to bring some of their cherry goodness to Indiana.  These items are available this year…no need to pre-order.

In addition, you can pre-order 4lb boxes of Michigan tart cherries and chocolate covered cherries (click to order below):

All pre-orders for these items must be placed by June 15th

Dried Tart Montmorency Cherries

Dried Chocolate Covered Cherries

Dried Dark Chocolate Covered Cherries

We will also be sampling our new all natural, clean label Cherry Pie.  These pies are available frozen to take and bake for your 4th of July celebrations.  They will be on sale for $12 this day (regular $13.95).  These pies are made with only a few all natural, non gmo ingredients.  Made the way your grandma would make cherry pie.
