The Flathead Lake Region of Montana offers an ideal climate for cherry production. It is approximately 3000 feet above sea level with beautiful, sunny, warm days, and cool evenings.  Long warm days with plenty of sunshine help develop outstanding fruit. Cool 40-50 degree evenings extend the growing season which allows fruit to mature over a longer period of time. These conditions contribute to the outstanding taste of Montana sweet cherries.

If you drive from Bigfork to Polson you will pass many beautiful cherry orchards, with most orchards on the east shore. Many Montana families, and now others from around the U.S. and Canada, plan their vacations around visiting their favorite orchards.
