An Afternoon in the Orchard

There is nothing more peaceful here at The Fruit Company, than taking a stroll through the Webster Family orchard.  As soon as your feet move from the hot pavement on to the soft grass you instantly sense the change of environment.

The rows stretch on for quite a bit.  Everywhere you look are gorgeous Webster Royal Comice pears, still young and basking in the warmth of the summer sun.  If you stop you can hear the sounds of the wind rustling through the short bushy leaved branches, keeping you cool as you take in the view.  Towering above, sits Mt. Hood.  Her year round snow covered peak adds a beautiful backdrop to the already splendid environment.

And then the hard part, stepping out of the quietness and back to the hustle and bustle of the busy world.

In 1942, Roy Webster began selling apples and pears from his orchards located in Hood River, Oregon. The area was perfect for growing fruit thanks to the volcanically enriched soil and glacial water from the nearby Mt. Hood. The fruit was exceptional. This orchard and fruit growing wisdom was passed down from father to son. In 1999, The Fruit Company was founded by Roy's grandsons, Scott & Addison Webster. Today, Scott runs the business as President and CEO. The Fruit Company packs and ships beautiful fruit gifts around the nation.
