"We've spent the past 52 weeks preparing for where we are right now, picking. We make every effort to make sure we pick the fruit when its ready and in good condition so we deliver it to the warehouses to be put into packaging and sent on to the consumer. People are enjoying our cherries this year and with reason — they're some of the best cherries we've every picked."
