  1. Three Cheese Grilled Cheese

    Three Cheese Grilled Cheese
    In terms of comfort food, a gooey grilled cheese sandwich is the comfiest. As much as we love the original American cheese version, there are hundreds of cheeses and other add-ons out there to really spruce up this classic. We assigned our head chef with this enviable task.
  2. Celebrating Leaf Day - The Republic's Holiday

    Celebrating Leaf Day - The Republic's Holiday
    With a nod toward our whimsical company value of ‘Beaches’ (as in “Life, Liberty, Beaches & Pie), which reminds us work should be done with a light heart, we took it upon ourselves to create our own holiday: Leaf Day.
  3. An Evening Supporting MLCV With Bob + Steph

    An Evening Supporting MLCV With Bob + Steph
    Cherry Republic President Bob Sutherland and his wife, Stephanie, are hosting a party at the new Cherry Public House in Glen Arbor to support Michigan League of Conservation Voters (LCV). We will discuss the current state of Michigan’s waterways and our vision for a powerful conservation voters movement in 2018 and beyond. Please come join Bob and Steph and many other like-minded lovers of Michigan's woods and waters to see what actions we can take to protect them for generations to come. Please join us on August 16 for this important gathering!
  4. Biking the U.S. for M.S.

    Biking the U.S. for M.S.
    Back in March, we got an email from Jerry VanStrien, a cycle-enthusiast on a mission. Jerry was about to embark on a cross-country bike trip from Kentucky to San Francisco to raise money to battle Multiple Sclerosis — and he was looking for some fuel for his team in the form of cherry love.
  5. Tickling Our Funny Bone

    Tickling Our Funny Bone
    We had a sneaking suspicion that our Citizens are among the most clever folks around, and you proved us right! Last month we put the word out that we were looking for new quips for our legendary in-store signs, and we received ideas from more than 100 people!
  6. New Charlevoix Store - A First Look

    New Charlevoix Store - A First Look
    On Thursday, June 7, 2018, after years of renovation, Cherry Republic of Charlevoix opened its doors for the first time. Here are some photos of the store as Cherry Ambassadors from far and wide prepare it for those summer Charlevoix visitors.
  7. The May Farm: Harvesting Sunlight

    The May Farm: Harvesting Sunlight
    It seems fitting to write a blog post about a solar grant project against the backdrop of spring’s lengthening days. The plants, animals and humans on the farm are harvesting every extra minute of daylight, faces tilted toward the sun.
  8. Sneak Peek: The Cherry Public House!

    Sneak Peek: The Cherry Public House!
    Our new Cherry Public House is one week away from opening.  It is looking fantastic and we are so excited.   Here is a little sneak peak as we finish up the zillion final details. Here is a view from the front of the newly renovated building.  You see new windows and doors, a new patio, and a new paint color...
  9. Some Snowy Springtime Fun

    Some Snowy Springtime Fun
    It snowed eight inches again last night. Here we are, halfway through April and Northern Michigan is back to winter wonderland for the second time in 10 days. We’ve had these little windows of spring that allowed us a hike on the beach last weekend. It was a mix of beautiful sandy beach to stretch out on (in our coats) and yet, just 100 yards down the beach four foot ice mounds to climb on. Here are some photos of the family and I enjoying a beach of perfect balance between winter and spring.
  10. Some Northern Winter Fun

    Some Northern Winter Fun
    It has been a few years since our winter has been cold enough to produce abundant Lake Michigan ice.  We saw it a few days ago while hiking Pyramid Point.  I knew we would be on a beach soon to explore all the beautiful blue and winter whiteness.
