Kiyokawa Family Orchards

Map
8129 Clear Creek Rd., Parkdale, OR 97041, United States

The history behind this farm, set in the lush Hood River Valley east of Portland, is part of its particular charm; it was established in 1951 by Mamoru Kiyokawa, a first-generation Japanese resident who spent much of World War II in an Oregon internment camp. The orchard's arresting view of nearby, snowcapped Mount Hood is also a big draw.
What to Pick: As well as 25 varieties of PYO apples (including Mountain Fuji, Rome, and Mutsu), Kiyokawa's son Randy, who now runs the orchard, offers three acres of Asian pears for the U-pick crowd.
Most Unusual Offering: The orchard hosts four annual fall festivals: Desserts Galore (Sept. 19–20), The Honeycrisp Harvest (Oct. 3–4), Fiesta Days (Oct. 17–18), and an Heirloom Apple and Asian Pear Tasting (Oct. 24–25).
Bells & Whistles: Hay wagon rides; a kids' play area; self-guided and guided orchard tours; picnic areas.
