How it All Began...

A former professional tennis player snacked on tart cherries, only to discover that his back discomfort was eased. A team of researchers from Cornell University were brought on board to explore the benefit possibilities further and helped us perfect a juicing process that sets Cheribundi apart.

The Process

Harvest

We harvest by shaking these cherries loose from the trees rather than picking by machine to, cherry for cherry, preserve as much of this goodness as possible.

Inspection

The tart cherries in our orchards are ripened to a point where everything, from their taste to the nutrients inside, is the culmination of nature at her best. 

Create

Our proprietary juicing process, developed in conjunction with a team of scientists, was developed to retain all of the nutrients, power and taste from each little round fruit.

Climate Factor

Requiring about 1,000 “chill hours” below 45 degrees in winter, tart cherries are hardier in winter than the sweet varieties, which fare better in the western portion of the country and fast-draining soils. Based on climates and topography, Michigan and northwestern New York are fertile grounds for tart cherries – with both areas featuring hilly tracts of sandy soils, and the protection of their respective Great Lakes, which temper the climate and form a buffer against summer storms.

Our Facility

Our 80,000 square foot facility in Geneva, NY and proprietary juicing process is a key competitive advantage for us.  One of the key differences between our process and, say, traditional juices that are made from concentrate, is that our “gentle juicing” does not require higher temperatures that can often kill the benefits associated with tart cherries.  Our “not from concentrate” designation indicates that we are pure juice without added water, sugar or preservatives. Though we do flash pasteurize at the packaging stage to kill bacteria, Cheribundi products are the end result of minimal processing and allowing us to deliver the full benefits of tart cherries in all of our tasty products.

Our Partners

We take great pride in providing a new and exciting opportunity for our dedicated tart cherry growers, whose yields enable us to produce premium products that are as delicious as they are nutritious. Our farmer-partners might be viewed as “specialty” growers, since the production of tart cherries differs in some respects from the way sweet cherries are raised and harvested. Read more about our farmer-partners.
