After three very busy days of u-pick, we are finished for the season. We will continue to clean out the orchard but our intrepid customers have picked out all of the cherries available to you and them. Thank you to those of you who were able to join us during these fine picking days. And for those of you who missed out, please join us next year! Several folks have asked about other orchards and u-picking opportunities and the best we can offer is to suggest that you make your way up the East Shore and look for signs on the road. It is our understanding that several orchards have signs out, but we do not know who they are and are still too busy with our own work to find them for you.
Our plan next year is to offer u-pick by appointment only for each of the days that we hope to be open. Watch this space next summer for information about when and how you can schedule a time with us.
For future cherry harvests, the following information remains and you can always get in touch with us for pitted and frozen or dried cherries and other farm products. In a short time, you will be able to purchase our value-added products direct from this website.
All the information you need to get here and the "rules" for picking are listed below. Cheers! Thanks and see you soon.
Here are the particulars:
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 packing 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. During u-pick season, we will have our "Fat Robin Organic Orchard & Farm" sign out South Finley Point Rd to guide you. There may be hand-painted u-pick 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.
From Big Fork take Hwy 35 South approximately 25 miles to Finley Point Rd. Turn right 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.

Some of our smallest pickers end up with more cherry on the outside than the inside.
