Windy Brow, named for its windy location on the brow of the ridge, was originally operated as a dairy farm dating back to the late 1800s. The first fruit trees were planted in 1920. When the original dairy barn was destroyed by fire in the 1940s, the Inslee’s decided to concentrate on fruit growing. Many of the original trees are still bearing fruit today. The packing house and farm store established in 1946 are still in operation, run by the Hunt family. We invite you to enjoy the fruits of our labor as you visit Windy Brow Farms and embrace the time-honored tradition of quality and goodness.
Windy Brow Farms is open with peaches, stone fruits, early summer varieties of apples, a variety of summer vegetables, homemade pies and assorted baked goods, as well as our jams, jellies, and honey.
