Hood River Pear Celebration
September 15, 2010
This coming weekend, September 18-19, 2010, is the annual Hood River Pear Celebration. Several farms in Hood River, OR participate by allowing you to come tour their farm, taste some pears and food made with or for pears, and of course buy their fall pears. Some places like The Gorge White House also have a winery with grape wines and a pear wine, Cathedral Ridge Winery is doing a pear and wine tasting together, and Marchesi Vineyardsis one upping that by including cheese.
We went last year, stopping off at The Gorge White House, Rasmussen Farms, and Cody Orchards Farm Stand. I tried and bought a lot of pears, because at the time, I was on a no fruit diet with the exception of pears and watermelon. And I do love pears! I highly recommend going.
