In 2003, Oregon Growers Founder Dave Gee set out to capture the bounty
of the Hood River Valley. Working directly with local farms and orchards,
we began creating delicious jams, fruit butters and other farm-fresh
food products that showcase and promote the hard work of our area growers.
We are proud to make, market and distribute what we call Farm Direct
Specialty Foods ® straight from the Pacific Northwest to you,
our larger community. We hope you can taste this special place in each
of our products.
We work with local Pacific Northwest farmers and growers
to bring you the highest quality, best-tasting fruit
in every one of our products.
Oregon Growers adheres to these strict quality standards:
Always use fresh, in-season ingredients
Purchase produce and other agricultural products directly from farmers
Value where food is grown and created
Encourage and support sustainable growing and operating practices
Oregon Growers believes in the power of local.
All of our products are sourced from the rich
and varied growing regions of the Pacific Northwest.
Their quality and great taste is the direct result of
the exceptional fruit we use. We seek out the growers
who not only produce the best-tasting fruit,
but who also use sustainable growing practices.
We love our home in the Hood River Valley,
and believe that the vitality of family farms and
local agriculture is key to the quality of life
enjoyed throughout the Pacific Northwest.
At Oregon Growers, our mission is to produce and distribute
high-quality specialty foods using fresh ingredients grown
in the Pacific Northwest, while employing business practices
respectful to the environment, communities and our way of life.
We operate by these guidelines:
Cultivate long-term partnerships with regional growers
Provide the best quality and best-tasting products possible
Raise awareness about the value and benefits of the regional food economy
Run our company in a manner that is sensitive to and respectful of the environment
