As a co-op of eight family farms, Payson Fruit Growers originally grew Montmorency cherries, a varietal that originated in Europe and found popularity in the America as “pie cherries,” a cherry renowned for its tartness and color. A staple of middle American cuisine, the market started to shift for cherry growers in the 1980s.
Seeing an opportunity in the dried fruit market, our owners started to experiment with drying the harvested pitted cherries. The tart Montmorency cherry is unique — firm and intensely red, and not as tart as you might think for our modern taste buds. Payson Fruit Growers discovered dried tart cherries were delicious incorporated into salads, covered in chocolate, or just eaten by the handful.
“We’ve been customers for several years and love the dried cherries as well as the chocolate covered cherries. I love the milk chocolate and my husband loves the dark chocolate cherries. I usually order them in the cool months, but i took a chance and ordered them in June, and they were perfect! We’re having a cool snap and they are packaged in foam, so they arrived perfect! They make wonderful gifts for the holidays, everyone just loves them!” – Rose Obrien, Google Review
“Awesome cherries!!” – Kathy Peters, Google Review

I love this place. Always have to get some ice cream and cheese curds. I love that they have different flavors of cheese curds. We make the hour drive just to get cheese curds and ice cream.
The food is so amazing. We bought the milk and couldn’t get enough!! Even though we live an hour away, we will be back for more milk and cheese. You have to eat their tomato basil with their yummy grilled cheese. It’s so amazing!!
