Each February, Terhune Orchards honors the memory of Presidents George Washington and Abraham Lincoln with our sale on cherry pie. Whether you’re celebrating Lincoln’s Birthday on Monday, Feb. 12 or Washington’s Birthday on Monday, Feb. 19, our freshly-baked cherry pies are $2 off the regular price in honor of these two great presidents who both had an All American, honest love for cherry trees and pies.
Historical records show us “Honest Abe” Lincoln loved pie so much the ladies from Illinois would send them to him in Washington D.C. Presidential Lore about George Washington as a child chopped into his father’s beloved cherry tree with his new hatchet and then told the truth about it when facing reprimand.
We have to be truthful ourselves, out of the over 20 varieties of pies made at Terhune Orchards, cherry is a family favorite. We’re not the only ones wild for cherry pie. Feb. 20th is National Cherry Pie Day. Enjoy a slice for breakfast, lunch or dinner with fellow pie loving patriots.
Made from sour cherries, the best kind for pies, our ruby red, cherry pies make a great Valentine’s Day gift, too. Stop into the farm store to pick up a pie or place an order for pickup by calling 609-924-2310 or emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
In the farm store, we also have an assortment of locally produced gift ideas such as Terhune Orchards wines, items baked fresh daily in our bakery and flowering bulbs.
