Founded in 1932, Oregon Cherry Growers (OCG) represents over 75 dedicated, independent growers tending orchards in the Willamette Valley, Columbia River Gorge and foothills of the Cascade Mountain range, where families have been farming for generations. From fresh table cherries to numerous varieties grown for processing, co-op members nurture thousands of acres of fruit trees in addition to hazelnuts and assorted berries. Managed by a board of growers, OCG is the second largest employer in The Dalles.
This program casts a Spotlight on Oregon Cherry Growers to introduce you to some of the many growers and OCG employees that are part of The Dalles community and raise local awareness about this vital industry.
