Stemilt Celebrates Annual Chant at the Moon Day

WENATCHEE, WA - At a time when the world is facing unprecedented challenges, we all need an excuse to have a little fun. This year, Stemilt’s annual National Chant at the Moon Day comes at the perfect time for consumers to let loose while indulging in the unique Moon Cherries that Stemilt is famous for. The yearly celebration that also serves as a successful brand campaign for the company took place on Saturday, August 15, and brought people out in droves to partake in the holiday festivities.

Roger Pepperl, Marketing Director, Stemilt“Not only does National Chant at the Moon Day bring brand recognition to our A Half Mile Closer to the Moon® cherries, but it also encourages people to get outside and have fun during these beautiful summer nights and have a delightful eating experience with our product," said Roger Pepperl, Marketing Director.

The annual event was originally created to bring attention to the innovative techniques of Kyle Mathison, which are used to grow Stemilt’s Moon Cherries. Mathison utilizes lunar cycles and gravitiational pull to enhance nutrients and give the cherries an out-of-this-world flavor, according to a press release.

Together, the three shared snapshots of the celebration with a whopping 170,000 followers, who were able to ring in National Chant at the Moon Day as well.
