U-Pick Cherry Orchard

The Sour Dwarf Cherry orchards in Bruno were planted under the direction of the University of Saskatchewan and the Ursulines of Bruno when the Ursulines owned the property where the Bruno Cherry Sunday is held. The property changed hands in 2007 to becoming St. Therese Institute of Faith and Mission, and since 2011 the orchards have been operating as U-Pick.

Please watch the articles below for information about this year's crop and U-Pick announcements. The fruit is usually ready for harvest throughout August, sometimes starting even in late July.

FAQ: What kind of Cherries do you have in the St. Therese Institute orchard?

CHERRY ORCHARD – U-PICK CANCELLED for 2018

CHERRY U-PICK ORCHARD OPEN AUG. 1
2018 U-Pick CANCELLED

Cancellation necessary due to fruit fly problems.

Due to problems with fruit flies and this year's crop, we regretfully have decided to cancel U-Pick operation for this year.

PLEASE NOTE: We had previously announced that the U-Pick Cherry Orchard would be opening August 1. After a final walk-through on July 30 in preparation to the u-pick opening, we discovered issues throughout our orchards that would negatively impact both the cherry picking experience and the fruit quality. We are sorry for any confusion or disappointment that this new development may cause.
