Our History


Community & Friendship For Over 50 Years

Mt. View Orchards is an 50-acre apple and pear farm nestled just north of Mt. Hood in the quaint town of Parkdale, Oregon. For over fifty years, our family has raised delicious, top-grade, environmentally sustainable fruit, establishing Mt. View as an important fruit grower in the Hood River Valley and Columbia Gorge region. We are 3 generations strong caring deeply about growing fresh fruit for our community.


Mt. View also distributes to local and regional businesses and eateries, and participates in a wide range of community partnerships. We believe passionately in the value and benefit of the family farm in a community and do all we can to sustain our contribution here in the Hood River Valley and beyond. Please come visit our farm!



Our Future Looks Bright

Hospitality and generosity are two of the biggest core values for my family and our farm. It’s our tradition to open up our farm like a large living room and invite family, friends, and visitors to come “taste and see” the abundance of our harvests. New and old customers alike get to enjoy the special and deeply satisfying experience of tasting the sweetest, flavor-packed fruit picked right off the trees, while getting to know the people who put so much love and care into raising it.

With small family farms on the decline, I am committed to doing my part to uphold this crucial component of our local economy by continuing to raise affordable fruit of the highest quality, building relationships with our customers, making visits to Mt. View fun and unforgettable, innovating fresh and delicious recipes and products, and more. I am also inviting old and new friends to follow my blog, The Grateful Farmer, where I am chronicling all aspects of my wonderful, hilarious, challenging, overwhelming, and heartfelt farming adventure.

A significant part of the pleasure of eating is on one’s accurate consciousness of the lives and world in which the food comes from
