Cherry Orchard in Winter

Door Countys Famous Cherries

Door County is Famous for its Cherries

Door County is famous for its cherries. Orchards have been planted throughout the county since the 1800s. Lake Michigan and Green Bay keep the weather conditions ideal for both the cultivation of cherries and apple – warm days, cool night. Perfect.

Door County has nearly 2,000 acres of cherry orchards and another 500 acres of apple orchards – 1/10th of the land in Door County is planted with fruit trees. The air is filled with the blossoms’ fragrance in the spring and the harvests fill farm stands with luscious fruit from August through October.

In winter, the orchards make great subjects for photographs. Love those red tinged trees in the drifted snow.

I'm a photographer, book-artist, traveler, naturalist, and creator of the Contemplative Creatives Journey, An Online Workshop and Community and Desert Wisdom Cards and Workshops. Though often not well known, I find the desert a welcoming place - a healing space. Its mysteries and gifts transformed me several years ago. Since that first encounter, I return again and again to fill my well in what most people think of as a desolate region. I'd love to share my desert discoveries and wisdom with you.

  3. I agree – the composition is very nice. The sky’s rosy hue complements the red of the cherry trees as well. Beautiful, Bo!

  5. It’s so surreal.. it sparks my creativity, and I love it when that happens after I look at a photograph.
