Mt. View Orchards is an amazing family farm in the Hood River, Oregon area that we love to visit whenever a fruit harvest is at hand. Cherries in July, peaches in August, pears and apples late September into October, it’s always such a joy to visit the farm and pick from their beautiful bounty! This year I am partnering with Mt. View to capture the essence of each season and it truly is such a lovely blessing to photograph a place I already love so dearly. Visiting Mt. View Orchards is akin to visiting a friend’s family home that is wonderfully lived in, where conversation, relationships, and joy are so clearly evident in every nook and cranny, where life happens around a kitchen table, and everyone is treated like family. It’s such a family-friendly place where each generation melds together and small kids run around through the aisles of lovely fruit trees exploding with giggles and laughter, eating nearly as much as they pick. Making it out to the farm is a highly recommendable experience during any season, though I think pears and apples are by far the most popular and abundant. If by chance a drive out to the farm isn’t feasible, Mt. View is also at the Cully Neighborhood Farmers Market every Thursday from 3 to 8pm in Portland.
