    Comments from a visitor on October 18, 2008:
    "Arriving at the Jones Creek Farm, you see a red barn nestled in the blue Cascade mountains. You already feel at home as Chomper and Copper, the Price family's dogs welcome you wagging their tails and Talea and Les Price offer you a cup of fresh apple cider. Then it's off with provided wagons and bags to the orchard where Talea can tell you about every apple there, letting you know where to find the best sweet or tart varieties. There is only one rule at Jones Creek Farm and that is you should try every apple you possibly can. If you don't like it, throw it under the tree and move on to the next apples to taste. We were there for 3 hours last weekend and were stuffed as we left. Talea and Les are passionate about their farm and it shows. Not only is the farm beautifully kept and the crops grown organically, but not certified, they can also tell you all you want to know about the crops and how best to prepare them. Their friendliness and letting you taste and pick whatever you want is truly a unique experience. I moved here from the east coast where apple-picking is a common autumn outing, but I never visited a farm as friendly and knowledgable as the Jones Creek Farm. I will definitely return, perhaps for the garlic festival, tomotoes and the tree grafting in the winter."
