We produce some of the sweetest and juiciest cherries that are grown in Summerland. Here at Dickinson Family Farm:
Many people wonder why we only let them pick on certain trees and they have to use a ladder even though the next tree is loaded with cherries and are on low branches. This is for a few reasons. The next tree may be a different kind of cherry and not ready to harvest. The other reason is since ladders are difficult for small children and seniors to use, we like to keep some lower spots for them to pick.
One of our most popular are the Rainier or “white” cherries. Meanwhile, the Vans, which are very juicy and crunchy are a very popular dark variety. We do not pick our cherries until the sugar level is as high as it is supposed to be. We can show you how we test the sugar. If you are interested, please just ask!
Picking cherries like it has been done for many, many years! No automation here, just the way our family has done it for over 100 years!
The World’s Tallest Tripod Orchard Ladder was designed by Dwane Dickinson and built by a local Summerlander in 2000. It is recognized by the world’s famous record book (you know which one!!!!)
Constructed primarily of wood, the ladder stands some 30 feet 2 inches high, weighs approximately 500 lbs and sits high above the orchard fruit trees. Stop in and see the ladder and have your picture taken. The folks at home will be amazed!
