Cherry picking season is in full mode throughout the Door Peninsula. The cherry crop harvesting in orchards began in earnest this past week, according to Steve Wood from Wood Orchards in Sturgeon Bay and Egg Harbor. Wood says the crop looks to be pretty solid despite the recent storms and heavy rains.
According to the Wisconsin Cherry Growers Association, Door County cherry orchards that offer pick-your-own option have opened this week. Sweet and Tart cherries are harvested every summer from mid-July to mid-August, according to Wood.
