Fruit Tree Owners
The League of Urban Canners (LUrC) offers harvesting services for fruit trees and arbors primarily in the Cambridge and Somerville area. Most of the fruit we harvest is processed into preserves such as jams, jellies, and dried fruit. Ten percent of the preserves we make from a tree or arbor is returned to the owner.
Harvesting starts in the spring and ends in late fall. The following is a list of fruit that we harvest.
- Mulberries (red)
- June berries
- Cherries (sweet and sour)
- Cornelian cherries (Cornus mas)
- Crab apples (many varieties)
Our harvesting teams are small and experienced. We can schedule our work in advance for dates and times that are convenient for you. We can also provide a liability waiver at your request.
