About The Harvest

The Murray Family’s farming heritage is five generations deep, marked by a legacy of conservation practices, land stewardship and innovative agriculture. In the 1980s, Steven Sr. and Vickie Murray traded their Bakersfield home for a 20-acre table grape farm, nestled in the mountains of the San Joaquin Valley.

In the late 1980s, the Murray’s began experimenting with cherry tree cultivation and it took six whole years to harvest their first test cherries. These days, Steven and Vickie share management responsibilities of the farm with their son Steven Jr., a rare fruit connoisseur, whose passion for unique crops has contributed to the diverse array of produce offerings that Murray Family Farms boasts: over 3,000 varieties of fruiting plants and over 600 unique species.

The Sequoia Cherries from Murray Family Farms are deep-red and purple with variegated burgundy and white flesh, known for being an early-season cherry. Spring blooms early in the San Joaquin Valley, allowing fruits to ripen well before other regions. Murray Family Farms prides themselves on having one of the earliest cherry harvests in the country. We’re excited to partner with the Murray Family to bring you the freshest, Sequoia Cherries you can get your hands on. The farm will pack and ship your fruit within 24 hours of harvest from Kern County, California.

All produce is shipped direct from Murray Family Farms using FedEx two-day shipping to guarantee freshness. Information on how to use, store and recipe ideas can be found by clicking here.
