The cherry season is short, lasting only a week, so you will want to get out this week. Cherry picking started yesterday, June 27, 2013, 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!

Remember picking with your mom and popping a few of the ripe red berries in your mouth (even though she told you not to) before you rushed home to prepare them for desert? This is one of those “Life is Better” moments in Londonderry, New Hampshire. Hundreds of moms, kids, dads and even grandparents 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 at Sunnycrest. 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 Elwood’s. From Adams, turn left instead of right onto High Range, then right on to Elwood 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.

Big Red Ripe Cherries at Elwood Farm in Londonderry, New Hampshire July 3rd 2009

Out in the orchard we ran into a family from Hudson, New Hampshire last year at the U-Pick operation. What a fun day in the sun the dense leaves of the trees and even denser clusters of cherries provided ample shade. Even so families were not seeking it out after several weeks of rain and cloudy sky for the last month.

It’s simple to pick head up to the barn where the farm stand is on the west side of the house. Grab a container and walk or drive to the cherry trees.

“Seeing” the family’s excitement on picking we mentioned pie as an option. Our little cherry girl, started a mantra on how much she liked pie and how it would taste and how good it was and… Changing the subject we asked if she had been eating some of the cherries she had picked, with a innocent look and a “no of course not” as she peered at the photographer.
