What's a Monty?

For over 60 years, we’ve grown Montmorency tart cherries, or Monties as we like to call them. Why Monties? They’re delicious, but also contain nutrients — like melatonin and antioxidants (quercetin and anthocyanins) — linked to better sleep, muscle and joint pain relief, and heart health.

Cherry Perfection

Cherries are a delicate crop. A difference of even 2 degrees during the beautiful spring blossom season can be disastrous. Luckily all of our Monties are grown on one of eight family farms in and around Payson, Utah, where the combination of mountains to the east, a lake to the west, and elevation approaching a mile high is cherry-growing perfection.

As a co-op of family farms, Payson Fruit Growers has been growing fruit since 1964. Harvesting Montmorency cherries every summer is a town tradition. Over a three to four week stretch at the height of Utah's hot, dry summers, memories are made and lessons of hard work are passed on to the next generation.
