Ray French Orchard Est. in 1960~
We are the Ray French family. Ray French Sr. built his dreams around this orchard in 1960. He started out with 160 acres of land covered in sagebrush, that later developed into Bing Cherries and Red Haven Peaches. Later in 1971 he also planted apples. Before the idea of U-picking came about, all of the fruit in the orchard was sold commercially. In the years that followed, the French family opened up a fruit stand with already picked fruit. It wasn't until the late 80's that the orchard was opened up for U-pick.
Ray French Orchard was primarily run by Ray French Sr., Miriam French and their 3 boys, Robin, Ray and Tom. In 1992 Robin French began managing the orchard for his father. Ray French Sr. Passed away in July 2009, at the age of 90. Robin along with his wife Sandra hope to continue on with his father's dream. The orchard now has 62 acres of Cherries, Peaches, Nectarines, and Apples. Among the different types of fruit there are also 22 different varieties. Harvest begins in June and usually comes to an end around the later part of October. It's a great experience to have the opportunity to pick your own fruit right off the trees and it's a fun activity for children to do as well. Hope to see you soon!
