We are a family farm! When you shop with us, you are helping to keep rural farmland strong! The Cody family has farmed in Hood River, Odell, and Parkdale and hope to continue doing so for years to come. Although our fruit stand operation has gone through some changes the past two years, you can still find the same fruit as before. We work to help build a resilient regional food system that improves the healthy and well-being of our community! This includes educating consumers about what is grown around them, when the seasons for certain items are, and how to tell when the produce is ripe and ready to enjoy. Join us in our mission of providing farm fresh produce to the community!
Growing practices: We are defined as conventinal. 90 % of the products used are OMRI listed. We incorporate natural pest control such as bat boxes for codling moth, and supplement our borders with native pollinator habitat to encourage the presence of beneficial insects. We are experimenting with cover crops between trees to provide protection/habitat for predatory bugs adjacent to the trees and possibly reduce the demands for irrigation. We also work hard to plan on having as little waste as possible. Produce unfit for selling goes to pigs and other animals.
Expected products: 10 varieties of pears, 5-8 varieties of apples, canned peaches, dried fruit, jam
Payment methods accepted: cash, check, FDNP vouchers
