Season and Hours

Open mid-June, whenever the cherries ripen, until late October or early November, whenever all of the apples have been sold.

We accept cash only.

Some fruit has limited availability because either the season is very short or demand is high (all cherries and some unusual varieties of apples in particular). Please CHECK FOR AVAILABILITY of fruit before you come by checking the Norman's Orchard Facebook page or by calling 724-224-9491.

Opening for pick-your-own: We will open for blueberry picking beginning Tuesday, June 27, 2023. See below for hours.

Cherry season:

Sweet red cherries ripen first, and last a few days up to a week; tart red cherries follow and tend to be picked in a matter of days; sweet yellow cherries follow. Overall, the cherry season only lasts two weeks or so in June.

Tuesday through Saturday 10am – 6pm
Sunday 12pm – 5pm

Blueberry season:

Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday 10 am - 3 pm

Apple season:

Wednesday through Friday 10 am - 6 pm
