Anticipated harvest is sometime from early Dec to mid January depending on the weather. Orders may be collected by arrangement from our roadside stall at the top of Holmes Hill, State Highway 1, Oamaru. We also send across NZ (except Rural Delivery) on overnight courier. The minimum order for couriered Tart Cherries is 4KG.

Please note: We do put large 'Fragile' labels on our polystyrene courier boxes, but due to the soft and fragile nature of Tart Cherries they can leak juice from around the stem, especially during freight. This juice oxidises in contact with air, and takes on a brown colour, which can look unsightly but is not 'rot'. During freight this juice can also disperse among the other cherries. You can rinse off your cherries when you receive them and then process or freeze as required.  Please contact us for more information.
