About the Cherry Hut

Cherry Hut LogoThe Cherry Hut was established as a roadside pie stand in 1922. The Kraker family used it as a means to distribute homemade cherry pies made from fresh cherries out of their orchard. Later, in 1937, the Cherry Hut moved to its present day location on US 31 in Beulah, MI. Throughout its long history the Cherry Hut has always been known for its homemade pies and jams.

The restaurant is open in the summer and closed in the winter making it an ideal job for high school and college aged students. Popular menu items include cherry chicken salad, chicken pie, and of course, everything goes well with a fresh slice of cherry pie out of the oven. We are very proud to have been recognized nationally by publications such as USA Today, The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, and Gourmet Magazine, among many others.

All year long the Cherry Hut ships out its homemade jams and locally grown dried cherries to fans all over the United States. We have expanded upon our original cherry trio gift pack to include some wonderful new items such as Cherry Salsa, Cherry Jerry's Chewy Sour Cherries, and the always popular Cherry Hut Spectacular.
