the fun activities we offer.
What’s better after an hour of picking fruit than spreading out a blanket under the trees and feasting on a picnic? We have plenty of quiet spots on our 50 acres for you to claim.
Bring your own boxes or grab some of ours, and fill them with fresh, ripe fruit picked right off our trees. We have rows and rows of peach, apple, and pear trees designated just for u-picking, and we offer them at a discounted rate per pound.
Our view of Mt. Hood is so spectacular that we named our farm for it. Feel free to bring your camera and capture our view in all its glory.
On Saturdays in October everyone can fit on our tractor wagon and take a jolly ride through the orchard. Children will love stopping to visit the farm animals, especially Carlos the Steer!
The Mt. View Orchard pumpkin patch is a huge attraction every fall. Kids of any age can explore and pick out a pumpkin, let the harvest fun and games begin!
Carlos the steer
Be sure to cone and see all the animals we have on the orchard, including Carlos the steer. When you are finished be sure to swing by and grab your Carlos the Steer t-shirts, hats and sweatshirts at the Fruit Stand!
The fruit stand hosts several events throughout the harvest season, including:
Swiss-Edelweiss Day Oct 26th, 2019
Throughout the harvest season we will be hosting a series of farm-to-table dinners featuring the best of local produce, beer, wine, cider, and more. We always try to make sure the weather cooperates so we can set up our farm table outside under the trees!
At Mt. View, the fourth Saturday in October is dedicated to honoring our family’s Swiss heritage. We serve a full Swiss meal to our guests, featuring wurst (sausage), homemade sauerkraut, grilled onions and apple strudel. Swiss accordion music and yodeling serenade the crowd, and everyone joins in when it’s time to sing “Edelweiss!” You don’t want to miss this party.
Fields of Flowers
Over the last few years we have greatly expanded our flower fields. We are now growing over 100 varieties of plush dahlias, as well as sunflowers, hollyhocks, cosmos, and a wide variety of other flowers. Whether you are looking for exquisite, fresh-cut blooms to complete the arrangements for your wedding or event, to beautify your restaurant, or just to add color to your kitchen table, you’re sure to find them here. Photographers, you won’t want to miss capturing the vivid colors of our flower fields beneath majestic Mt. Hood.
