Kay Ericksen is a local cherry farmer and serves on the Culture Trust Board in The Dalles for Wasco County. Together with her husband, Dan Ericksen, they manage more than 90 acres of cherry orchards, including early market varieties like Bings and Chelans. While Dan tends to the orchards, Kay oversees the office side of the business, including payroll, recordkeeping and regulatory requirements. When she’s not handling the administrative side of cherry-growing, she enjoys spending time with her granddaughters, scrapbooking and traveling.
