Enjoy Seasonal, Delicious Cherries from Smit Farms!
Cherries are officially back from Smit Farms! Stop by this Sunday to grab a bag of these delicious, plump, red cherries to make your taste buds dance with joy!
About Smit Farms:
Located in Linden, California, Smit Farms supplies many of this state’s Certified Farmers’ Markets with tree fruit that has been sustainably grown since 1969.
What is the secret to our great tasting produce? A rich history of cultivating in the heart of California farmland is behind it all. Over four decades of experience and a commitment to top quality ensures that you receive the best fruit an orchard can produce.
Smit Farms was established in 1969 by the Smit family and is located about 30 minutes east of Stockton, CA. After emigrating from the Netherlands to Northern California, meeting his bride, and establishing a dairy ranch, John Smit soon got wind of a new apple that would be conducive to grow in the region: the Fuji apple. They proceeded to transform the property from pasture lands to rows and rows of fruit trees. The Smit Family continued to add a wide variety of apples, table grapes, cherries, stone fruit, blueberries, pomegranates and kiwifruits to their orchards.
Smit Farms has been successful by focusing on growing high quality organic fruit. Going for quality over quantity has helped create a reliable brand of fruit that is always in demand. Smit Farms is still run by family and plans on continuing to do so. The Smits are committed to sustainable farming practices that will allow the soils and those tilling them to coexist in the most natural environment possible. Most of our orchards have been certified organic by the CCOF and registered with the California Department of Food and Agriculture (CDFA) as organic. Smit Farms can be found at many farmers’ markets in various areas of California.
Stop by this Sunday to pick up some amazing and fresh fruit!
