Blackbird Farming

Cherries

Our cherries are grown using traditional methods supported with modern day know how, such as our hydro-cooler. This means we produce great tasting fruit for you to enjoy.

Our harvest begins in late June, Merchant and Van being the first to ripen. Although these cherries are a brighter hue of red, these vibrant varieties are simply delicious, and truly mark the beginning of summer.

Handpicked, washed and cooled within 90 minutes ensures we capture the fruit at its finest unspoilt quality. To maintain our exacting standards after the cherries, leave the farm, we only supply our fruit to key wholesale markets and supermarkets.

We start handpicking our cherries in June, so from January each year we take applications from those who want to join us and work, helping us to bring in the harvest.  We have lots of pickers who return year after year; because our experienced skilled pickers know they can earn excellent money on piece rate.
