Fresh Cherries and Pesticides

Did you know that non-organic fresh cherries may carry dangerous chemicals in the form of pesticides? According to the Pesticide Action Network, the USDA Pesticide Data Program found 42 different pesticide residues in cherries. 7 of these are known or probable carcinogens (directly cause cancer), 22 are suspected hormone disruptors, 7 are neurotoxins, and 8 are developmental or reproductive toxins. Beyond the damage these pesticide residues can do to the human body, 18 also affect the already unstable populations of honeybees.

Plus, our farm fresh cherries are picked by hand over the course of the harvest season, making sure that each cherry is at the peak of ripeness and flavor.
