Thank You (And 1/2 Off) From Kiyokawa Orchards

psu market opening day

Not Quite Fruit Bearing Market Trees

Kiyokawa Family Orchards wants to take a special market day to say thank you to all the great customers of the PSU Farmers Market.  Our final “apple” date will be April 27, 2013.  We will be back to the market with awesome locally-grown cherries in July!  Our apples will be available at awesome-ly low prices for the entire market!  HALF OFF all varieties!  Braeburn, Cameo, Fuji, Golden Delicious, Granny Smith, and Newtown Pippin (all 0.89 per pound).  And the prized Honeycrisp (only $1.69 per pound).  Let Wendy from Kiyokawa Orchards say goodbye for the season with a smile and an apple!  Come see us on April 27 (8:30 to 2 pm!)

This Year's Growth

2013 Apple in Waiting

Randy Kiyokawa says, “Thank you to all the customers, friends, family, employees and patrons for an absolutely fabulous season with Portland Farmers Market.  We are looking forward to yet another season with PFM and hoping to bring even more flavor to you in 2013!”

Kiyokawa Family Orchards is a family-owned and operated farm located in Parkdale, Oregon. We’re proud to be a part of the famous Hood River Valley, where the nation’s finest apples and pears are grown. Our fruit is grower-direct, which allows us to provide quality fruit at great prices.

Kiyokawa Family Orchards has been growing the finest produce available since 1911. The fertile soils found at the base of Mt. Hood and rarified, glacier-fed water sources create a unique growing environment allowing us to offer over 80 distinct varieties of apples, pears, and Asian pears. We take pride in promoting local and sustainably grown produce and utilize a farm management system that incorporates best management practices.

You will find a visit to our orchard an unforgettable family experience with breath-taking views of Mt. Hood and beautiful grounds for your touring and picnicing pleasure. Kids will love our play area. Our fruit stand offers award-winning pies, turnovers, local honey, jams and fresh cider. If you prefer to pick your own, we have the largest U-Pick orchard in the valley!IMG_1144
