One of the oldest U-Pick Orchards in the Flathead Valley

Bring your family for the ultimate farming adventure

About Us

Hockaday Orchards is located at the Peaceful Valley Ranch on Angel Point. We are approximately 5 miles south of Lakeside, Montana. We are a 100+ year old, family run orchard that allows people to come and pick their own produce.


For four generations, we’ve opened our you pick orchard to people all over the country, passing through, for some of the best cherries on Flathead Lake.

Come Pick With Us

Cherries are $1.25 per pound. The Orchard is located about 5 miles south of Lakeside, MT. We are only open during the cherry harvest, which varies year to year.


Once we open, we are open from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., 7 days a week, until the harvest is gone. Bring flat boxes, good shoes and we will get you going! We accept cash, checks (local) WIC and Farm Direct Vouchers.


If you would like your cherries already picked, please call ahead to order them. The price is more if we have to pick.

Current Picking Status


We are now closed for the 2016 Season.  It was a very short season due to bad conditions. We are very sorry if we missed you!
