The Orchard

 


The Orchard

Rickey Creek Orchard is generally open from the 1st of July through mid-October.

The cherries ripen about the first week of July. We grow several varieties, including Bing, Rainier, Royal Ann, and Montmorency pie cherries. Apricots are harvested next, around the end of July. We  have a long and plentiful peach season, starting around the end of July and continuing around September. We grow Red Havens, tons of canning peaches, and Early Improved Elbertas in mid-September. We also have a nice crop of sweet nectarines, summer and fall apples, and a limited amount of plums, prunes, and walnuts. Our large garden is filled with sweet onions, tomatoes, raspberries and an assortment of other produce.

We sell pre-picked fruit and have some u-pick available. Many people enjoy coming out to the orchard for the outdoor family experience. There are some customers who have been buying their fruit here for over 30 years.

Come check out Val’s Treasures, a large selection of collectible glass and unique second hand items. We also offer pure honey produced from wildflowers along the banks of Lake Roosevelt. Delicious jam and preserves made from our own fruit right here in our kitchen makes a nice gift. Customers love our laborsaving canning devices, such as Excalibur dehydrators, cherry pitters, apple peelers, and steam canners and juicers. We keep our prices far below retail on these devices.

In 1991, Rickey Creek Orchard was named Conservation Farm of the year in Stevens County. The orchard floor was seeded with a low growing orchard grass and a gravity flow water system was built on Rickey Creek for irrigating the orchard and garden area.

Over the years we have added hundreds of young peach, cherry, apricot, and apple trees, assuring an abundant supply of quality fruit.
