WE GROW SWEET CHERRIES!
WHO WE ARE
Carcajou Fruit Company Ltd. is a family farm owned and operated by the Carlsons. Our first orchard was planted in 1991 byJan & Keith and we have been expanding and improving our operation ever since. Much of the current operation and all of the future is up to Claire & Teno, Erin & Bart, and Marty.
Our family works hard to produce safe, healthy and delicious cherries as well as keep an enjoyable and fair work environment. We hire dozens of people to help us during harvest season, the majority of which are domestic, local, or world-travelers on working holiday visas.
WHERE WE GROW
Summerland, BC is the unofficial cherry capital of the world.
With the world renowned cherry varieties from the Summerland Research and Development Centre (SuRDC), we are growing with the ideal soil, climate and weather for this great fruit.
We grow 9 different varieties of Summerland sweet cherries and our season begins in late June and goes until the end of August.
WHAT WE DO
Our family grows, picks, packs, and ships fruit for world markets.
We label our product 'Sweet Diamond' and work hard to put a perfect pack into every box. In collaboration with Consolidated Fruit Packers (CFP), our crop is sold throughout the world.
We have about 50 acres in production, we hire 60-80 fantastic people to help us harvest (July & August), and we have fun doing it!
