About Me & My Family

We are a French family who has been living in the US for 15 years. We spend all our summers in France, visiting our family as well as other European countries. I write travel books and I am having lots of fun doing that. So far I published two: 'Your Guide to Visit Paris for Free' and 'Your Guide to Visit San Francisco for Free', both available on Amazon.com

Cherries picking farms around the US

Here is a list of some cherry farms around the US where you will be able to pick your own cherries. Keep in mind that updating the farm website is not a farmer’s priority when harvest season comes so it is wiser to call them to inquire about the best time to come cherry picking.
