Introducing our 2019 Montmorency Nouveau Preserves!
There's a certain night-before-Christmas vibe around Cherry Republic each year as we prepare to make our first batch of tart cherry preserves of the season. Why such anticipation? Because in 24 short hours, we harvest the first crop of Montmorency Tart Cherries from a local Leelanau farm, rush it to our Cherry Factory in Empire, and craft it into the freshest jam around -- our Montmorency Nouveau Preserves. Get a behind-the-scenes look at this amazing process here.
Decommission Line 5
We support the decommissioning of Line 5 -- the decrepit 64-year-old pipeline that runs under the Mackinac Bridge, right through our Great Lakes. Please watch this video and listen to Cherry Republic's President, Bob Sutherland, view on this critical issue.
