U-Pick Cherry Season Open in Londonderry

Jun 27, 2011 No Comments by

Sweet red ripe Cherries ready for you to pick in southern New Hampshire. Two locations open everyday Sunnycrest Farm from 7am to noon and Ellwood Orchards from 8am till 6pm.

The strawberry season will be wrapped up in a week or possibly a little longer. The cherry season is short lasting only a week so you will want to get out this week. Cherry picking started for 2011 on June 24th so it should last into the fourth of July weekend. These are estimates if you had a pie or cobbler planned for your fresh fruit, best to get the early pick-ins!

This is one of those “Life is Better” moments in Londonderry, New Hampshire. Hundreds of Mom’s, Kids, Dads and even parents are out in the fields picking berries and making memories.

Why not join us this week!

Driving down the scenic byway on Adams road off to the right you will see fields full of people picking strawberries. The cherries are a little harder to find. Park in the driveway to the south of the farm and walk to the west (into the orchards) follow the arrows. A left just after the maintenance barn then a right at the last grape trellis. Just follow the arrows, even if they have a blueberry on them you are headed for the cherry trees.

If you missed the morning crop at Sunnycrest head over to Ellwood’s from Adams turn left instead of right onto High Range, then right on to Ellwood Road. Just past the power lines you will see some strawberry patches, the cherry trees are right on the roadway as you head to the farm stand. They are across from where the old grand barn burned down in the last century. If you do not see someone in the field head to the farm stand in the barn to get some containers and instructions.
