Northern Michigan’s Cherry Haven

These days, everyone automatically correlates Northern Michigan to cherries. Not only is the area the number one cherry-producing capital of the world, but the nationally famous Cherry Festival is celebrated throughout the region every year. North Star Organics is proud to be part of this famous legacy, bringing delicious and fresh organic produce to people all over the state and country.

The Kobernik family brings their farming history and passion for cherries into everything they do. North Star Organics allows you to take a piece of that pride home with you.

PLEASE NOTE:  We have had a robust season and will close Tuesday, July 9th at 6 pm – sorry for any inconvenience!! It has been a great season. 


2024 Update:

25 years – our Silver Anniversary of Organic Certification for Tart and Sweet Cherries!!

That’s 25 one-year experiences…not cumulative – which means we are still learning.  

2024 came out of the gate early after a very dry and mild winter.  So far this year we have had a plethora of rain, mostly welcome but can ease up a bit now and also a touch of frost this spring.  Dark sweets are a light crop, Golds are a decent crop, and Montmorency tarts are plentiful. 

Our pollinator habit is outstanding this year – a new block of 299 trees were planted [looking for names for this block of tart cherries!] and yes could not squeeze in that 300th tree. 

We so look forward to our customers every season – and this year is the same!  

Keep an eye on Instagram and Facebook for more updates. 

The Kobernik’s

Christopher Baker Loves Cherries Too


Famous film and video producer, Christopher Baker, was inspired by the Kobernik’s cherry farm when he visited. He created this montage of footage to celebrate the region’s favorite fruit and the pride and joy the Kobernik’s take in running their orchard.

A note from your organic cherries:

We are organically grown on a small family farm on a peaceful hillside in picturesque Northern Michigan. We are proudly raised for you by Alan, Cheryl, Emily and Eric and committed family and friends. They meticulously tend our soil, carefully prune our limbs, vigilantly defend us from harm and ultimately harvest us. Our stewards carefully oversee us being washed, sorted, pitted, packed and dried. We are very proud of our farm family that is committed to responsible and just decisions in all aspects of their lives. We find their commitment is the only way for all to thrive. Please enjoy us and thanks for supporting organic farms.
