Mother Nature offered up a cool, damp spring and set the harvest back a couple of weeks. But the cherries are here and as good as every. If you have never tasted a fresh, tree ripened cherry, you are really missing a treat!
Head on up to the Hood River Valley and join in the harvest. The Hood River Valley's cherry season features sales of fresh-picked cherries at Fruit Loop farms and cherry products, such as wine, jam, pies and other desserts.
Don't miss the cherry/white chocolate chip cookies at Packer's Orchard and Cookie Stop Bakery, #14 on the Fruit Loop. The pear-fect place to enjoy fresh seasonal orchard fruits and mouth watering aroma of freshly baked cookies. Enjoy a refreshing fruit smoothie and watch the cookie crew at work in the bakery. Something for everyone. Packer's also offers homemade, all products right on site, jams, jellies, butters, sauces, syrups, pie fillings, cookies and so much more!
So much to see and so much tasting to do, you will want to plan a couple of days. Enjoy the warm days and cool, crisp nights in the Hood River Valley. Plan to stay at an area bed and breakfast of the Oregon Bed and Breakfast Guild.
