Glacier Fresh Cherry Orchard is situated on 54± acres on the eastern side of Flathead Lake and only 15 miles south of Bigfork. The orchard provides the perfect setting to build a custom estate home and enjoy all the amenities Flathead Lake offers. The homesites provide breath-taking vistas and warm sunsets.
The best way to describe this orchard is fabulous views, incredible homesites, and a farm that is financially healthy. This is a great opportunity to purchase a well established cherry orchard and packing facility, build a very secluded estate home, and be right in the middle of a recreational mecca.
Glacier Fresh Cherry Orchard is one of the largest cherry orchards in Montana and has built a worldwide reputation for a high-quality product. The orchard is comprised of several different species of cherries. The intent of growing multiple species of cherries enables the orchard to meet changing market demands in any given year. Currently the farm is raising Lapin, Sweetheart, Rainier, and Kootenay cherries. Each one of these species is ready to harvest at different times. Spreading out the harvest ensures high quality fruit throughout the growing season.
It is a rare opportunity to be able to purchase a piece of land that combines estate-quality homesites and produces a substantial income. Most working ranches do not produce enough profit to justify the land acquisition cost, due to the nature of ranching and farming. Very seldom does a property actually produce a substantial income and provide awe-inspiring views of Flathead Lake.
