Owner description: Northern Michigan is the cherry capital of the United States, and almost all of our products contain this most versatile fruit. We turn them into salsas and jams, cover them with chocolate, mix them with nuts, bake them in cookies and bread, and even use them to make soda pop and wine. The mighty cherry does it all! Even in the off-season, the Cherry Republic Grand Café in Glen Arbor is a great place to stop for a coffee, a Boomchunka, or a slice of pie. Learn more about the The Café in Glen Arbor.

This is the original compound, a place to get ice cream, shakes, floats, a wine tasting and cold soda room, a place to buy and taste products from dried and chocolate covered cherries, cherry sauces and dressings, cherry spreads and preserves, cherry salsas. They have an awesome website and newsletter too! :D

That's their motto! Someone recommended that we go here and we were soooo glad we did! We had a delicious lunch of chicken salad and a meatloaf sandwich on cherry bread. It's all about the cherries on this complex. We went to the retail store and tasted all kinds of cherry offerings from salsa to bbq sauce to preserves to pie filling and on and on! Then we went over to the winery for a wine tasting. They even have an outdoor cherry pit spitting pit - Olympic size! The place was beautifully landscaped, filled with good-humored staff, and just a delight to visit.

This is cherry heaven in Northern Michigan just a stone's throw from Sleeping Bear Dunes N.P. To paraphrase the shrimp scene in Forrest Gump, there's cherry cookies, cherry soda, cherry pie, cherry ice cream, cherry chili. . . You get the idea. I first visited this Northern Michigan landmark about ten years ago when it was relatively new. It has expanded tremendously since then - a TESTAMENT TO ONE GUY'S VISION FOR WHAT THE HUMBLE CHERRY CAN BE.
Over those ten year's it appears to have become a major tourist destination but its quality and the friendliness of its staff has not suffered. And the products I tried (and there were many) are all very good. Not a clinker in the mix. Worth the trip to Northern Michigan for cherry soup, cherry pasta, cherry wine, cherry scones, cherry syrup. . .
