Welcome to Cascade Farmlands

Snow has fallen along the foothills of the Cascades dusting Cascade Farmlands leaving a palette of white with dark details.  You’ll find bare apple branches against downy landscapes, dark flowing rivers with frosty white banks,and muted pines pushing up against pale skies.  “Tis the season to snuggle up by warm fires, swoosh down chilly banks of snow.  Have a glass of hard cider before settling into your soft beds for the night…or three.  Enjoy slow feasts and fast sledding hills.  Winter is a time of delightful, delicious contrasts in Cascade Farmlands.
