Cherries are one of many integral parts of a Canadian summer.

A Canadian summer staple, if you will.

“We are excited to hear from western Canadians about their favourite summer staples and how our grower’s cherries are enjoyed throughout the summer months. And what better way to celebrate your favourite summer staple then winning a trip to a true Canadian staple taking place in Calgary this year.”
