Fresh Cherries from our orchards!
Wayne is in full swing, – sorting cherries, giving out samples, and enjoying visiting with the customers. We have fresh early tart cherries, just picked from our trees at Seaquist Orchards. We are hoping to have fresh sweet cherries from our trees by this coming weekend. Check back – we’ll be sure to post when we have them!
Summer is here – and Seaquist family members and employees are working non-stop!
Our next family member in our story of what we do during the off-season is Zach. BUT, it’s not the off season anymore! Summer, fall, winter or spring, – Zach, who grew up working in the farm machine shop, orchard, beside his dad Dale, is busy year-round, building and repairing equipment. Zach is in charge of the machine shop, heads up the harvesting crew during cherry season, implements and maintains our irrigation systems, and helps us all whenever he can with whatever needs to be done. Zach is one of our behind-the-scenes family members, – who helps make it all go well for the rest of us.
Fresh strawberries are available! They are ripe and so very delicious! In one of the Seaquist households, strawberry shortcakes is the traditional Sunday night supper during strawberry season. Big shortcakes, lots of strawberries, whipped cream and a spoon – and you are all set for a terrific supper. There are 4 food groups in there someplace, – we’re sure!
Summer has come quickly to our orchards, and we will be harvesting cherries before we know it! We may have early tart cherries within 2 weeks – quickly followed by several varieties of sweet cherries.
