20 Valley Harvest Farms is a family farm in Jordan Station, Ontario (Niagara Region). Our main focus is cherries – both sweet cherries and sour/tart cherries. We run a popular pick-your-own, two on-farm fruit and vegetable markets. We are open to the public in July and October for harvest. The majority of visitors to the pick-your-own cherry farm are from the Greater Toronto Area. Our farm is conveniently located on the way to Niagara Falls and we are a popular stop for tourists seeking an on-farm experience.
