I just wanted to add my testimonial that as an avid juice and organic beverage consumer, my opinion is that Columbia George juice is far and away the freshest, best tasting on the (saturated) market today. Better than Evolution or Naked or Odwala brands. No matter what combination of juices you choose it is always perfect and often better than expected. I wish your farms years and years of success!

We are interested to learn how many people across the country are raving about Just Greens. This is great news, not just for us, but for America. Wonderful to find that people are really working to get fit and heatlhy! Even people who have been juicing at home are reaching for CoGo, finding it every bit as vibrant and delicious as their own.
The farm is abuzz, sales are jumping, and there are many big surprises in store for all you fans of CoGo. Meanwhile, I wanted to share a a very inspiring letter we recieved from a new customer in Darien, CT.
We are so happy to report that our 2012 Harvest is finished! All our wonderful Certified Organic Fruit is picked off all the trees, and we will be packing it until about March of 2013. We have about 30 varieties of organic apples, and about 10 of organic pears. Of course we blend these throughout the seasons to create the best ciders, smoothies, blends and gluten-free food bars on the planet!
This week we have started delivering juice and CoGoBars from our own distribution company to Southern California. We are so thrilled to be doing this, and our drivers are anxious to meet all of our store managers and employees (and hopefully a few happy new CoGo consumers).
Harvest is still in full swing! Things going great - the weather is perfect, and this year’s apples are particularly beautiful: crispy, unblemished, and delicious!
We had a very cool letter from a fan in Texas. Paul Petkoff is an athlete who wants all elite athletes to try our Just Greens and then report on how it affects their workout.
We are so busy on every front, but it’s all exciting! We are picking all the fall fruits and will continue until the end of Oct. The fruit is absolutely beautiful hanging on the trees, and it smells so wonderful this time of year when walking thru the orchards - a combination of fresh apples and pears along with the fermentation of the ones on the ground that don’t get harvested… the fresh autumn air, and rich damp soil - sometimes a hint of spicy smoke in the evening from valley woodstoves making houses cozy for the night… there is nothing like the Hood River Valley in the fall.
We’re picking peaches, pears, apples, nectarines and plums. Wow. Things are HOPPING. We’ll be picking and packing full time from now to the end of October. I sure hope the weather stays nice for the pickers and tractor drivers.
If you ever have the misfortune to be laid up in the hospital with a sign above your bed that says “clear-foods only” you can look forward to consuming broth, juice, tea and artificially colored & flavored gelatin. Fortunately for patients at Jefferson Healthcare in Port Townsend,WA, Arran Stark, Food Service Director, has improved this austere diet by making his gelatin, dubbed “Juice-Gel,” from scratch using Columbia Gorge Organic juices.
Picking, picking, and picking some more… the summer harvest is in full swing: peaches, apples, pears, and nectarines are flying out of our orchards now. The weather has been great for all the harvesting work - not too hot, not too wet.
