Our tart cherry concentrate is chilled in the refrigerated sections of grocers and in your home fridge to keep the active bio-nutrients at high levels in order for the potent antioxidants to give you their maximum health benefits. That’s why “Keep Refrigerated” is printed on our label. See our blog post that explains this in more detail: Why Do We Keep Our Tart Cherry Concentrate Chilled?

We harvest our Montmorency tart cherries during July and August on the Stanton Orchards farm in Lake Leelanau, Michigan. Our tree-ripened tart cherries go through a harvest process that includes gently shaking the cherry trees and ultimately catching the gentle cherries into tanks of hydro-cooled water to immediately lower their core temperature and significantly help preserve their important phyto-nutrients. Then we chill the cherries further to 34 degrees with our fresh water cooling pads. The cherries are then transported to a refrigerated processing center where we press them into concentrate.
