Celebrating National Cherry Month

If cherry trees blossom in May in Northern Michigan and the harvest falls in July and August, why do we honor The Greatest of All Stone Fruits in the middle of winter? Here’s why!

The month kicks off with National Dark Chocolate Day on February 1st. And what goes better with chocolate than cherries?

February 2nd is Groundhog Day. If Boomer sees his shadow, it means six more weeks until Bob can go barefoot!

In February 1912, the mayor of Tokyo gifted 3,000 cherry trees to Washington D.C, as a symbol of friendship between the U.S. and Japan.

February 5th is Ice Cream For Breakfast Day. Good morning, Cherry Fudge Sauce!

National Heart Month is in February, and not only does the cherry resemble the shape of a heart, but its antioxidant properties are good for your heart health. Check out our CherryStrong Softgels and CherryStrong Cherry Concentrate.

Super Bowl Sunday falls on the 13th. Pass the Cherry Salsa and chips!

Valentine’s Day is February 14, making this a perfect month to celebrate Ruby Red Morsels of LOVE. Shop our Valentine’s Day goodies here!

Random Acts of Kindness Day is observed on the 17th. A wonderful day to send someone a Cherry Cheer Gift Box.

We celebrate George Washington’s birthday on the 21st, which makes us wonder: If our nation’s first president had chopped down an apple tree, would he still be famous today?

February is the perfect time to salute our hard-working Michigan cherry farmers for their past year of hard work and wish them luck with the 2022 crop!
