Please note that we have implemented an Orchard Entry Policy, in addition to the Liability Waiver Policy, affecting all who entery our property.

Prior to admission into the orchard a pre-paid $5 wrist band will be required for and worn by each picker age 12 and over. Children under 12 are free.

The cost of the $5 pre-paid wrist band(s) WILL BE CREDITED towards the listed cost of any fruit YOU PICKED upon checkout! For example: you have three adult wrist bands in your party and pick $30 of fruit between you, then your check out cost would be $15.

The wrist band credit does not apply towards other items for purchase; such as honey, jam or pre-picked fruit. These items will be sold at the listed price.

Welcome to American River Cherry Company, thank you for stopping by!
This family owned farm is proudly operated by the Rice family.

We're located just off of Highway 49, less than three miles north of historic
"Old Hangtown" Placerville, CA.

For directions to our farm (which is THREE MILES from HWY50) on HWY49 in Placerville, please CLICK HERE
For directions starting from your chosen location and ending at our farm please CLICK HERE

We offer both self pick and pre-picked / pre-packaged options for our berries & cherries.

Our 2013 harvest prices can be found HERE!

We will try to update the website with fruit ripening information as the season progresses. In the past we tried to offer a "guide", but this has become impractical as each year is different! You're always welcome to call or send us an email with inquires as to what's available and when.

Our typical harvest includes the following -
Bing, Rainier, Regina and Tieton cherries
Blueberries (Bluegold, Tomcat, Earliblue & Duke)
Raspberries (Cuthbert, Chilliwack, Autumn Britten & Summit)
Blackberries (Arapaho, Logan, Siskiyou & Apache)
Boysenberries, Marion & Ollalie Berries
Figs (Brown Turkey, Kadota & Jill)
Wild Mountain Honey, produced right here on our farm!

All visitors MUST sign the provided waiver release form prior to entering the picking fields, or other parts of the farm. For those of you that are simply purchasing pre-picked fruit, and not venturing anywhere else, a waiver isn't required.

You may download a copy of the waiver in MS Word or Adobe PDF, and fill it out ahead of time, or complete one on site.

Please remember that ladders and climbing trees is not permitted. This is for the safety of everyone.
