Due to two years of severe nursery losses, our board of directors has changed our focus. Rather than bareroot propagation and sales, we are shifting to education and the care and maintenance of our historic Mother Orchard.
Please consider becoming a member (below) and donating to help continue our work.

Thanks to Peaceful Valley Farm and Garden Supply (originally started by our founder Amigo Bob Cantisano), a collection of some of our favorite species and varieties will be available through them for the 2024/25 Bareroot Season. 

Stay Tuned…

A huge shout out to Sweetland Mercantile in North San Juan, CA for working with us. Thank you for supporting them with your purchases.

Bigelow Cherry

Out of stock
Product Details

This dark red to purple, medium to large cherry is super succulent with rich, deep purple juice. It was the top taste winner in 2013 FGI taste trials. It bears a very large crop on an irrigated, yet untended tree planted in the late 1800’s. Excellent fresh and dried, wonderful in pies. Ripe in late June to early July at 5400’.

The healthy, vigorous mother tree is growing in Sierra City, Sierra County, at 5400’ on the canyon of the North Yuba River, twelve miles northeast of Downieville. A thriving mining town established in 1850, Sierra City peaked at 3,000 folks in the 1860’s. The population was 221 at the 2010 census. We have begun to locate the Gillet era trees in this town, and have found many great cherries, pears and apples that will be offered in future years.
