Located in the beautiful Niagara Peninsula, our farm has been owned and operated by the Moyer Family since 1799 -217 years! Thank you for your interest in our 'pick your own' operation and welcome to our website. Here you will find all the necessary information to plan your next visit to our farm. This includes directions to the farm, a picking schedule, which includes variety and approximate ripening time, pricing and FAQ's. The quality and quantity of our fruit is largely effected by weather conditions, so please check back often to ensure you have the most up-to-date information.

The summer is approaching and things are looking good on the farm. This winter was pretty mild, so our trees were not hit as hard as in the past. This year we have a medium - medium+ crop of cherries, a medium sized crop of apricots, a large crop of peaches, but no yellow plums this year. We will give updates on these fruits as they begin to ripen.
When will we open?
We are expecting to open on Monday, July 4. At this time we will not have enough cherries for picking this July long weekend. Once our cherries are ripe, we will be open for picking and the season should last anywhere from 10 days to 3 weeks depending on how busy we are during that time.
Prices: Our cherries will be around the same price as last year, which is $2.25 per pound.
Minimum purchase: We have a minimum purchase that must be paid before entering the orchard. It is $5 per adult and $3 per child (under 10). This amount will be deducted from your final purchase when you pay for your cherries, as long as you pick enough to cover the minimum. Say one person entered, paid their $5, and picked $10 worth of cherries, they would only pay $5 on their way out of the orchard. We do this so people do not go into the orchard only to eat and have a free tractor ride, but they buy a minimum amount of fruit.
Methods of Payment: Cash or Cheque only
Hours: Once we are open, our hours are Monday-Saturday: 8am-7pm and Sunday/Holidays: 8am-6pm.
Please note: if you are planning to bring a bus group for cherry picking, you will need to book in advance. We can only accommodate a certain number of buses during peak periods, so please call the farm and speak to Jazmin or Jen to book your group.
We look forward to your visit on the farm this summer!
