We believe it takes the right team to bring you fresh produce. That’s why we work with farmers who grow only the best.

Tip Top Orchard Wenatchee Heights, WA

The Toftness family was born and raised in a town filled with tree fruit farms. One day by fate, they discovered a very special cherry in their orchards. And that’s how our partnership began. The Toftnesses invited us to try their exceptionally sweet and crisp Skylar Rae Cherries, and it was one of the most amazing cherries we’d ever had. The rest is history. We’ve now been working with them for 4 years to bring you fresh and flavorful Private Selection™ Skylar Rae Super Sweet Washington Cherries.
