About

Williamson Orchards and Vineyards is a family owned and operated business which aims to produce the highest quality product and provide honest and knowledgeable service to our clients. We feel it is important to practice good business while serving as stewards of the land. We strive to use natural and organic growing methods whenever possible. In the early 1900s the Williamson's planted our first trees. As the family grew, so did the business. Four generations of Willimasons have worked the farm. The original homestead of 80 acres has grown to over 700 acres of fruit and row crop. From the first planting of apples and cherries in 1910 we have added a wide variety of soft fruits and apples. We offer a variety of tree fruits and home grown produce & veggies in our seasonal open-air market! In 1999 we planted our first 25 acres of grape vineyards which has grown to 38. We follow the same growing practice in our vineyards as in our orchards because we believe that good wine starts in the vineyard! Visitors can sample our 10 unique and award winning wines in our intimate tasting room.
