Apple Cart Fruits
Apple Cart Fruit is owned and operated by Michael Simon. He has operated along the Okanogan River in Tonasket WA since 1978. It is a certified organic orchard featuring multiple varieties of apples, peaches, cherries, and apricots. In 2013 the neighboring River Willow Farm was leased to add to the acreage and varieties of fruit. River Willow is owned by Norm and Diana Weddle and was one of OPMA's founding farms as was Apple Cart Fruit.
Among the varieties of cherries offered are Rainier, Bing, and Lapin cherries and well as tart pie cherries.
Sweet, juicy apricots and peaches in multiple varieties will follow after the cherries. In the fall several kinds of apples are available such as Honeycrisp, Gala, Cameo, and heirloom varieties such as Arkansas Black and Yellow Newtown Pippin. Recently Apple Cart has started producing wonderful dried apricots and will begin marketing them in 2016.
Apple Cart Fruit stewards its land along the river bank and is not only organic but environmentally conscious in its land use.
