If you ask most Cherry Republic employees what their favorite season is, they’ll more than likely tell you that it’s fall. In Northern Michigan, the weather during this time of year is still beautiful, and there’s a nice lull between the crazy days of summer and the jolly-yet-hectic weeks leading up to Christmas.The only problem […]
First Stop: Grass Lake Nature Preserve
I took my family to the other side of Grand Traverse Bay — to Torch Lake, Bellaire and the farms, trails, woods and wetlands of Antrim County. It took some time to persuade the boys that this switch in Leaf Day activities would be worth it.
“Usually, we go exploring […]
I am happy to announce Leaf Day, our very own Cherry Republic National Holiday. We will be closed today Monday, October 16, to honor the autumn season and all the good in our lives.
I feel like I should apologize to all of you for being closed, but truly, more than anything, I feel compelled to express […]
Fall is one of the shortest yet most spectacular seasons of the year in Northern Michigan. And if steamy summer days stretch on through September and biting winds start blowing ahead of schedule in early November, you might just blink and miss this glorious time of year! All the more reason to be purposeful about […]
Northern Michigan’s fall foliage is legendary, and Leelanau county might be the crowning jewel. While most visitors experience the soft summer hues of Caribbean blue waters, sparkling beige sands, and lush green forests, when summer ends and temps drop Autumn is ready to move in.

This September has truly become an extension of summer.

Colebrook and Hawthorn caught the biggest fish they’ve ever […]

We thought it would be fun to mix photos of fall with our fall Harvest products. Fall has stayed around this year like a good friend. We love our fall products just as much as we’ve loved this warm and blustery weather. While we wish our products could stay with us forever, we know that […]
Leaf Day was a success this year at Cherry Republic. In northern Michigan the weather on Friday started out sketchy – many of the area football games were played in rain, sleet and snow. However, as the hours closed in on our new holiday, the weather became much better. When Monday arrived, it was a […]
Fall colors surrounding the red barn at the Charles Olsen Farm in Port Oneida.
It’s hard for us to pick a favorite time of year up north in the Republic. But if you forced us to, we’d have to say “fall.”
It’s so peaceful. The bustling crowds of summer have returned home and life up north […]
