The Farm at Cherry Hill is looking for a few hardworking people to join their team. They sell beautiful flowers and fresh blueberries at their roadside stand, as well as cherries through my family’s receiving station north of Mapleton (Johnson Farms).

The Farm at Cherry Hill is located at the end of Cherry Hill Road, which is off Center Road about a half-mile north of Peninsula Community Library. Their roadside farm stand is located at 13200 Center Road.

I’ve written a bit about their farm and history over the years, including here and here, and the fact that my best friend, Bethany Beadle, and her family rented the house from the Giles’ when we were kids. Thus, I spent a lot of time there.

The Farm at Cherry Hill was started in 1993 by Lew and Kathleen Seibold, and in 2017, their youngest daughter, Annika, and her husband, Nathan Lorenz, moved back to the farm. It is such a joy to see that beautiful piece of land still being farmed after all these years – and with gusto! They love what they do, and it shows in every gorgeous flower and box of yummy blueberries.

SUPPORT YOUR INDEPENDENT LOCAL NEWSPAPER: I started Old Mission Gazette in 2015 because I felt a calling to provide the Old Mission Peninsula community with local news. After decades of writing for newspapers and magazines like the New York Times, Los Angeles Times, Family Circle and Ladies' Home Journal, I really just wanted to write about my own community where I grew up on a cherry farm and raised my own family. So I started my own newspaper.

Because Old Mission Gazette is a "Reader Supported Newspaper" -- meaning it exists because of your financial support -- I hope you'll consider tossing a few bucks our way if I mention your event, your business, your organization or your news item, or if you simply love reading about what's happening on the OMP. In a time when local news is becoming a thing of the past, supporting an independent community newspaper is more important now than ever. Thank you so much for your support! -Jane Boursaw, Editor/Publisher, Old Mission Gazette
