‘Tis the season to be cherry! 

Cherry Time has truly been something of a rarity. It's been a tough season with extreme weather conditions ranging from heat waves during flowering to ice rain before harvest.

However, we're delighted to have shared some of the few cherries we have available with our Cherry Time family. We apologise to those who missed their cherry fix. We would've loved to share Cherry Time with all of you.

Thank you so much to everyone for your support. ‘Tis the season to be cherry and we hope you have a very merry time.

SOLD OUT

Cherries embody that festive feeling and signal the start of the holidays. They’re the ultimate indulgence and their super-short season makes them extremely sought after.

The family

Over 120 years ago, the Du Toit family settled in the Western Cape’s fertile Koue Bokkeveld region. From the beginning, we realised that many hands make light work and that success is sweeter when shared.

That’s why our story is also the story of our dedicated farmworkers. Together, we work the land on numerous farms in the Western Cape.

The recipe

Our cherry pickers put their heart and soul into cultivating the perfect cherries. They tend to the orchards all year round; preparing for the happy day when the season’s first red cherries appear.

When the time is ripe, they rise with the sun to carefully pick and choose the sweetest, juiciest cherries. They work meticulously, but fast, to pack, cool and deliver the harvest as soon as possible. So that, when you bite into a Cherry Time™ cherry, it’s as good as straight from the tree.

The One

We always were and always will be picky about our produce. When we realised that the Koue Bokkeveld’s long, freezing-cold winters are perfect for growing cherries, we spent years searching for just the right cultivar. Finally, we found the one. The plumpest, juiciest of the bunch – Cherry Time™.
