Ballinaclash Cherries

Our 2021 Pick-Your-Own Season is well underway. ONLINE BOOKINGS are essential.

Please note, due to a very cool and wet November, there has been significant damage to our early cherry varieties and a slow ripening. The December weather forecast looks more promising and we are hoping that the later cherry varieties will improve. We thank you for your understanding and appreciate your support.

See Pick-Your-Own page for more information.
