Pick Your Own Cherries near southern NH at Parlee Farms
One of the most beautiful tree fruits, we have nine varieties of Sweet Cherries at Parlee Farms covering two acres. The 1,400 trees are on a full-dwarf root stock, so they are easy for everyone to harvest. We harvested our first cherry pick your crop in 2010 and it was a big success!
New England Cherries have a very short season – only about three weeks from late June – mid July. The pick your own cherries season can be further reduced by weather conditions, especially rain when the fruit is present. So, we hope you can enjoy this wonderful fruit in the short time it is available!
Sadly, after having record cold temperatures (-17 degrees!) at the farms in February, we have lost most of our cherry crop. As a result, we will not have cherry picking during the 2015 season.
