Side Dishes: It's time for DIY fruit at Champlain Orchards

There aren’t many cherry orchards in Vermont, but for the second year running, the one at Champlain Orchards in Shoreham is open to the public. For the next few days, customers can pluck sweet Rainier cherries or ruby Cavaliers for $3 per pint. While you’re there, you can also snag red raspberries. Black raspberries will be available next week, and pick-your-own peas and cherry tomatoes are on the way.
