Cherry Picking at Andy's Orchard

  • Andys Orchard 1615 Half Road Morgan Hill, CA, 95037 United States (map)

Join fellow alums in a stone fruit tour and tasting of Andy's Orchard, a Santa Clara family business that has been in operation since 1957. The tour and tasting consists of the farm stand, the store/museum, the orchard, and the packing and drying facilities. It will cover the history of fruit, history of agriculture in the Santa Clara Valley, fruit growing, marketing, and varieties. Your guide will lead you on your Harvest Walk through the orchard. You’re welcome to savor firsthand the various fruits that are ripe at the time. On this date, ripe cherries are expected. You’ll receive a bucket to pick your favorites. The bucket is then carried back to the farm stand for weighing and purchase (fruit is priced per pound). Children under 10 are admitted free. Reserve your tickets.
