Thanks to a very cold and wet spring, our apple tress actually set worse than our cherries. There virtually isn't any fruit out there to pick. So, we'll have to catch you next year starting in the summer for cherries.
Thanks for thinking of us. Wish us luck next spring for all our sakes.
If you've never been to the orchard, here are directions: From Polson take Hwy 35 north six miles to Finley Point Rd. Turn left. Just after you see the sign for Finley Point State Park, make a left onto South Finley Point Rd. Go 1/4 mile and pass the cherry processing plant. We are the first dirt road past the packing plant on your right. Go to the top of the hill and come in our gate on your left.
From Big Fork take Hwy 35 South approximately 25 miles to Finley Point Rd. Turn right and follow the directions above.
During the u-pick season, we will have our "Fat Robin Organic Orchard & Farm" sign out on South Finley Point Rd to guide you. There may be hand-painted u-pick or organic cherries signs on the highway and right after you turn onto Finley Point Rd. That is NOT us. If you are coming to Fat Robin, pass those signs and follow the directions above. Google Maps will bring you here but many GPS systems won't. GPS may take you someplace else, which will be a nice diversion but won't get you any of our yummy cherries.
Any questions? Call 406.887.2869 (no earlier than 8 a.m. or later than 8 p.m., please) or email us at email@example.com.
Some of our smallest pickers end up with more cherry on the outside than the inside.
