Scenic View Orchards began their operation in the mid 1800's with primarily a hay and grain operation. Through the years different crops were raised based on product demand and to allow for proper soil management practices. The farm has remained family owned and operated for the past seven generations.
Over the past thirty years, we have expanded our operation to include fruit trees, berries, and vegetables.
We started selling produce from a picnic table in Betty's front yard. From those humble beginnings, we have progressively expanded over the years; from a table, to a truck bed, to a wagon, and eventually to an air conditioned store with a blacktop parking lot. Take a beautiful drive through the mountains and come see us everyday from 10 A.M. to 6 P.M. We open our doors May 18 for 2020.
