Located in the beautiful Niagara Peninsula, our farm has been owned and operated by the Moyer Family since 1799 -219 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. Or you can contact us at the homefarm in Vineland. We would be happy to assist you in any way possible:

Well, it was a late, cool spring! Due to the weather, and the hangover effects of our terrible hail storm last year, we have a smaller crop of cherries than normal this year. What this means, is a shortened picking season. We will likely open around July 5th or 6th, and we will pick until all the cherries are gone. We will do our best, but we anticipate that we will need to close early on some days, and may even be closed on others. It's not ideal, but farming is often about adjusting to what Mother Nature gives you!
Last year we had a terrific crop, only to see it decimated by a fifteen minute hail storm in late June. We are so grateful for our understanding customers who picked a lot of 'ugly' fruit last year! Our fingers are crossed for a better season, with the top-quality fruit our visitors have come to expect from us over the years!
Our first crop will be sweet cherries, and due to the late spring, we expect to begin sometime in early July. We will not know our exact start date until late June, as that date will depend entirely on the weather between now and then. Please check back with us in late June, as we will post our start date on this website once it is known.
We expect our prices to be similar to last year - cherries will be $2.25-$2.50 per pound, with a minimum purchase of $5 per person.
Please note: if you are planning to bring a group on a bus for cherry picking, our spots are full on July 7, and we are not taking any more reservations for the weekend of the 14th because of our reduced cherry crop this year.
If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact us: 905-562-5481.
We look forward to seeing you on the farm some time this season!
