FRUITS, NUTS, SUNSETS & LOVE BLOOM IN OUR HISTORIC ORCHARD
Located on a historic orchard. We are proud pickers of apples, blackberries, pears, plums, cherries, grapes, raspberries, rose-hips, walnuts, hazelnuts & guitars
Some areas of the 10+ acres we have in fruit and nut trees were planted prior to 1900. With 12 varieties and counting of apples, we believe that the orchard was a cider orchard. We even got a visit from the famous Lost Apple crew and many of the apples went back for testing.
In 2020 we resumed the cider heritage on site and pressed nearly 70 gallons of cider. The majority of that cider went to our friends at High Mark Distillery in Reno, NV for the base of their spirits Apple Jack and Apple Jane. (cherries, blackberries and other seasonal fruit are juiced and head to High Mark as base for their fruited moonshine)
In addition to growing many varieties of fruits and nuts, pressing and selling juices and cider, we attend the Orofino Farmers Market and other nearby markets based on product and time availability.
We grow using all natural practices using no chemicals and following organic best practices, but we have not begun the process for organic certification.
Looking for fruitwood for your BBQ smoking? We have apple and cherry shreds, chips, chunks and logs available year-round.
