Stories Of Southern Oregon: Skiing Pears And More
Dunbar Farms has been in Medford so long, the original pear orchards were plowed with the help of horses. 110 years later, most of the pear trees are gone, replaced by wine grapes and a number of other crops.
But Dunbar Carpenter's daughter Emily Carpenter Mostue is still on the scene, directing the activities of this unique (within Medford city limits) agricultural operation.
The farm is the focus of this month's edition of Stories of Southern Oregon, collected and curated by Maureen Flanagan Battistella. Maureen returns to the studio with members of the family running Dunbar Farms today.
