It’s Cherry-Pickin’ Time

If you look up Door County – well, anywhere – you’ll probably see a photo of a cherry next to the name because the county and the fruit have been synonymous since the first trees were planted in 1896. 

Well, our little, red friends have been ripening during the past few weeks, and now it’s time to fill a bucket with more cherries than you can eat pretty much anywhere in Door County. Here are a few spots to check out for your annual cherry fix.
