Why children need to spend time outdoors
Kids these days! They spend way too much time on screens with distance learning, and then after school, they usually want to play video games or watch a show.

Outdoors

 

Apples, Spice and Everything Nice

Whether you're picking apples with the family in Hood River or purchasing them from a local vendor, apples are a fall-time staple

Holiday Traditions 2020

Coming together in a world full of distance

And for some, it's that special time to go on a much-needed family vacation.
