Dorris Ranch

We have been wanting to go to Dorris Ranch ever since we moved to Springfield and we finally made it there this week. Dorris Ranch is only a few minutes from our house. It’s a working filbert farm and was established in 1892. That makes it the oldest working filbert farm in Oregon. Filbert is another name for hazelnuts, in case you were wondering.

We didn’t stay long but we had a lot of fun walking through the filbert trees and playing on the old farm equipment. We will definitely be back again!

It’s really hard to get a picture of this kid when he’s not running away in the other direction!
