CHERRY INDUSTRY HISTORY

About:

The cherry industry that is prevalent in Northport today had just begun in 1853 on Reverend Smith's farm. Farmers began producing cherries so much within those first few years that cherries were being shipped to nearby cities for their markets. The cherry industry in Northport and Leelanau County remains one of the largest in the world. A history of the cherry industry from the first cherry trees being planted to the Cherry Homes Orchard and Cannery and history of the First National Cherry Festival.
