A Sweet, Sweet County Tradition
Door County's cooler spring months and unique soil composition make it an ideal spot for growing cherries. Early farmers in the county observed this and developed some of the earliest and largest fruit orchards in the state. Some of the biggest names in the county—such as Seaquist, Lautenbach, and Zettel—got their start with a modest grove of cherry trees, eventually making the words "Door County" synonymous with "cherries."
