Northern Michigan is known as the Cherry Capital of the World, and for good reason. The landscape of both the Leelanau Peninsula and the Old Mission Peninsula is perfect for growing cherries and fruit of all kind. Harvests from cherry trees include tart cherries and black cherries all of which are made into chocolate covered cherries, dried cherries, sour cherry candy, cherry pie and and eaten as fresh cherries on summer days. Northern Michigan cherries are key to Michigan’s vibrant agricultural community and are critical to the Michigan local food movement.
