The Hood River County Fruit Loop is 35 miles of orchards, forests, farmlands, and friendly communities, with a drive that includes gorgeous viewpoints and vistas. Along the Loop are 31 visitor-friendly businesses: farm stands, wineries, alpaca farms, a chestnut farm, lavender fields, and gift stores. Fresh fruit and produce are available throughout the summer and early fall. Join us for these fall events: September 19-20 Pear Celebration & October 24-25 Heirloom Apple Celebration.
Hiker: Wesley Chancellor Favorite Oregon Hike: Mt. Hood’s Elk Cove Hiking Tips: Mt. Hood’s Elk Cove is a wildflower wonderland if visited at the right time — usually late July, early August. Barret spur is a short 2.5 mile hike from elk cove. It is however a serious butt burner. At just about 1100 feet elevation gain per mile. Trekking poles are a big help on the way down. Or make a quick decent jump on one of the glaciers and glissade down! Social: @wesleycphoto
As a grower and wine producer, our first goal is to produce a unique fruit that reflects the place in which it is grown. We put priority on soil and plant health by using matured compost and beneficial sprays of nettle, seaweed and ground silica to boost the plants’ health. Our vineyards are farmed using organic practices and our orchards are farmed using sustainable methods moving closer to organics each season. We continue to experiment with integrative practices that add personality and function to the farm. We welcome you to visit our Cellar Door for wine tasting on the weekends.
