Hillcrest Orchards has been producing delicious apples and pears since 1889 and is one of the valley’s oldest continuously-owned family orchards, having been owned by the Parsons family since 1908. By 1938 all of Hillcrest Orchard’s apple trees had been removed and Hillcrest Orchards focused on pears. Some of the orchard’s earliest pear trees remain standing, producing Hillcrest “century pears.” In 2002 Roxy Ann Winery was founded by one of the family and has been producing varietals such as Bordeaux and Rhone. We hope you enjoy this taste of Rogue Valley history!
