Cherry Update - Saturday May 28th at 8:30pm
This week and today was quite a busy time in the orchard, and we are so grateful for all the wonderful cherry pickers that came out to see us! Our back orchard still has some ripe fruit, but our hours may be limited tomorrow, Sunday 5/29/2016. Please plan on coming early (open at 8am), and please understand if we have to close early.
We will not be open on Monday, Memorial Day, as our front orchard (Bing, Rainier, and Utah Giants) still needs time to ripen.
We plan to reopen on Tuesday, but will post another update on Monday to let you know the status of the orchard. Please understand that we are only trying to make this the best experience we can for our cherry friends! Thank you for your patience!
Cherries are $5.00 per pound this year, and honey is $10.00 for our bear size jar and $20.00 for the large jar.
Welcome to Copeland's Cherry Ranch in Leona Valley! Home of some of the best CERTIFIED ORGANIC cherries in Southern California!
Leona Valley is west of Palmdale and north of Santa Clarita. The
countryside, fresh air, and nature is just a hop, skip and "quick car
Our History - We purchased our property in 1998 and planted our first 200 trees in 2000 (Bing and Ranier). In 2001, we added over 260 trees (Tieton and Utah Giant) to the orchard.
Our orchard in 2005 - Just 5 years old
Our cherry trees were given organic certification approval through CCOF, CDFA and the USDA in April 2008. The orchard is subject to annual inspections and review of our record keeping for organic certification renewals. Taking care of our trees is hard work for our family of five, but worth every bit when we see the smiles and hear the laughter of customers enjoying themselves in the orchard.
Our orchard - April 2010
When can we go? - Our season usually begins in June and sometimes runs into July! This year (2015) we will not be opening due to the small amount of cherries available. We are now working towards our 2016 crop and will update opening dates in May 2016. Check back at our website then for updates or call us at 661-270-1900.
When we open come out for the day with family and friends to pick and enjoy one of nature's sweet treats! Four cherry varieties to choose from, honey for sale from our very own hives, and a picnic area under shady trees for fun memories.
