Nursery Visit - Red Ridge Farms in Dayton, Oregon

I think this will be my last post on gardens we saw while in Oregon. Ok, so this isn’t a “Garden Visit,” but it’s a really, really cool nursery. So cool that I took a lot of pictures there. Red Ridge Farms is a nursery, gift shop, lavender farm, vineyard (Durant Vineyards), and olive tree farm / olive oil producer all rolled into one. There’s also a guest suite above the gift shop just in case you can’t tear yourself away (unfortunately with a two-night minimum stay). If I lived in the area, I would be a regular visitor to this fine place.

There’s a nice little garden area next to the gift shop.

The nursery area had some really cute arrangements of pots, plants, and rustic garden furniture.

The paths was covered in acorn shells. I saw this same ground covering somewhere else in Oregon. Can’t remember where right now...
