Here's another Century Farm citation:
Sydney Babson planted the original orchard. His granddaughter, Sydney, and her husband, Rick Blaine came to Parkdale area in the 1970's to continue working the farm. Their children, Heather and Gorham Blaine are the fourth generation. They are raising pears, apples and cherries in the Hood River Valley.

"It's phenomenal to be able to work outside and raise a family with the many outdoor activities available in this beautiful spot at the foot of Mt. Hood." Gorham Blaine
I remember Syd from when I was about 14, how he used to drive around the orchard in the jeep with a red bandana tied around his head. He had some of the best apples, called Winter Banana. Haven't seen any in years.
