It’s July in Door County and that can only mean one thing, it’s “Cherry Festival” time! Despite the delayed arrival of spring with unseasonably cooler weather in May and early June, cherry orchard farmers are optimistic about the crop this year. You can sample all things cherry from jams, jellies, bakery goods, dips, sauces, etc., at farm markets, shops and roadside stands up and down the peninsula. These cherry treats make excellent gifts for teachers, friends and family members, hostess gifts, or just plain tasty goodies to have ready to serve from your pantry or refrigerator. Several farm markets are within a short drive from Birchwood Lodge in Sister Bay. We also suggest you start out from our location and meander along the back roads where you’re likely to come across roadside stands with already picked cherries or search the countryside for “pick your own cherries” signs at small farms and orchards. While Wisconsin may be called “America’s Dairyland”, Door County has always been known as Cherryland. Make your reservations soon to stay with us in any of our beautiful suites or Village Homes by calling toll-free at 866-854-7195. You may also reserve your unit online at www.birchwoodlodge.com. Whatever way you go searching for your cherry treats, you’ll be enjoying the fruit that has made Door County famous for almost 100 years. Happy hunting!
