Kilcherman’s Christmas Cove Farm

  • Orchard

Kilcherman's Christmas Cove Farm is a four-generation farm located on the beautiful Leelanau Peninsula of Michigan. We are surrounded by the clear blue waters of Lake Michigan and Northport Bay. The climate is ideal for growing quality fruit - including apples, cherries, peaches and plums. Our Village of Northport is picturesque and the countryside reminds one of a patchwork quilt.
John became interested in the many varieties of antique apples which have slowly disappeared from the orchards and consequently from the marketplace. This interest has become his hobby. He has sought old books and journals long out of print and the knowledge and interest of other nurserymen to increase his own knowledge of the subject. We now have 250 varieties of apples growing on our farm. We also grow some of the newest varieties that are being introduced into the marketplace. He is known as "John, the Apple Man" for his love and interest in apples.
