As with all of our tree ripened fruit, we let our cherries hang on the trees a few extra days to let mother nature maximize their sweetness and flavours. While risky some years... More

I always choose this route to return to Toronto from a day in Niagara-on-the-Lake, just so I can stop by Van de Laar Orchards to pick up some Italian plums, blueberries, yellow plums, cherries, peaches, nectarines, etc.
