Payson Fruit Growers

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.

Reviews:

“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

Woodyatt Cherry Farm

Our family farm specializes in Montmorency Tart Cherries – the perfect cherry to use for pies, jam or juice. Picked at the peak of season (around July), we harvest our cherries and then preserve them in natural ways so they can be enjoyed year round.

With their vibrant, deep red color and tart but sweet taste, dried cherries make for a flavorful addition to your diet.  They provide fuel and essential vitamins you need to get through the day and are perfect for any local salad. We are also  extremely proud of our Montmorency red tart Cherry concentrate,  in which we provide the purest concentrate – it’s never watered down.

Benefits from the Red Tart Concentrate include relief from gout, arthritis pain, inflammation and exercise recovery. Our concentrate is filled with antioxidants, natural melatonin and potassium; as well as rich in anthocyanins, a class of antioxidant phytochemical [ a disease fighting agent].  Studies have shown the consumption of tart cherry juice provides older adults greater protection the development of heart disease, cancer, and age related cognitive decline.

Visit our farm annually Monday – Saturday from 9 am to 9 pm; or visit us at the seasonal farmers market or on our online store.

I purchased a gallon of frozen pitted pie cherries a couple of years ago. I couldn’t remember the name of the place, but stumbled on this website. Eureka, I found it! Now I can go back and get more! Best cherry pies I ever baked were the ones I made with their cherries. BEST EVER! – Elenore Hampton, Google Review

This is an adorable country store! The atmosphere draws you in. The food sold here keeps you coming back. Make sure you try the ice cream, it is the BEST. And the ice cream may seem a little pricey, but the portions are enormous!
