Root Orchards

Root Orchards, a sweet cherry farm, is located in beautiful Mosier Valley, nestled in the Cascade foothills of the Columbia River Gorge. Mosier Valley boasts some of the most picturesque vistas around. The climate, location, and the soil all contribute to growing some of the finest cherries in the United States if not the world.

Root Orchards has over 100 acres of sweet cherries in various stages of production and is an Oregon Century Farm. Wade and Suzie Root are the fourth generation of the Root family to farm in this location. Amos and Hannah Root bought and began farming here in 1878. Their son Clyde and his wife Christine farmed, raised fruit and added acreage to the farm from 1911 until retirement. Their son Verne and his wife, Lois, continued this tradition. Verne and Lois bought adjacent land in the 1950s farming alongside Clyde and Christine and then bought the ‘Home Place’ and additional acreage before retiring. In the early 1990s, Wade and Suzie began leasing the Home Place and purchased adjacent land. Today their sons, Cameron and Casey are part of the operation continuing the family tradition into the fifth generation.
