My Harry and David Experience

When I was a little girl, I used to walk home from school each day in December hoping with all the hope I could muster, that “the package” had arrived.

I’d walk into the house and unload jacket, scarf and mittens, then timidly tiptoe into the kitchen to check the mail on the table. As soon as I turned the corner I would know… if the Harry and David Tower of Treats had come.

This is a memory that is repeated throughout the entire course of my childhood.

Harry and David Tower of Treats | ASpicyPerspective.com #Oregon #gifts #travel

I couldn’t wait to carefully open each cascading box to see what edible treasure was inside:  apples, pound cake, various chocolates, and the end-all of holiday treats Moose Munch, a caramel corn mix with chocolate and nuts.

And let’s not forget the pears.

Harry and David sent the most flawless, juicy, golden wrapped pears, that sliced like butter. We would ration them out after the package arrived, to ensure everyone in the family got their fair share.

Harry and David is the centerpiece of one of my fondest holiday memories and has made it possible for me to relive this nostalgic experience year after year.

Even now, I secretly hope each and every year, that a business associate, or a good friend will send us a box from Harry and David.

So when I was invited to tour the Harry and David Orchards and Chocolate Factory, there was not a single moment of hesitation.

I would have crawled from Asheville, North Carolina to Medford, Oregon, to get there.

What I learned about Harry and David once I arrived in Oregon, only enhanced my devotion to the company.

First and foremost, Harry and David is not just a pretty packaging company. They actually produce the majority of the items they offer.

Harry and David Pear | ASpicyPerspective.com #Oregon #gifts #travel

The breathtaking orchards spread across 19 farms in southern Oregon and boast 700,000 pear trees. These Comice or “Royal Riviera” winter pears are treated with as much care as newborn puppies.

Harry and David Winter Pear Orchard | ASpicyPerspective.com #Oregon #gifts #travel

Harry and David hires approximately 330 professional pickers each year to gently hand-pick every pear. The pears are picked in the state of “maturity,” not ripeness to protect the skin.

The harvesters use a special hand technique and gloves to ensure no bruising occurs. Harry and David transports the pears with water flumes, specially designed trucks, and padded sorters to make sure every pear comes to you as perfect as it was, hanging on the tree.

Harry and David has spent years fine-tuning their method of farming to grow smaller trees that produce the very best fruit. They actually graft the comice pear trees onto quince root beds, causing the trees to stay small, so the orchards are safe for their pickers.

This is not genetic modification. Grafting roots is an agricultural art you can experiment with in your own backyard, if you happen to have a green thumb and a whole lot of patience.

On top of growing these magnificent pears, Harry and David makes thousands of chocolates and baked goods each year, right in Medford, Oregon.

Harry and David Chocolate Factory | ASpicyPerspective.com #Oregon #gifts #travel

The Head Chocolatier, Charlie (yes, Charlie) told us they make up to 130,000 truffles on any given day and pop 100 pounds of popcorn to make Moose Much each hour.

We watched bakers make tantalizing baklava, brownies, cakes, cookies and candies.

We learned to hand tie the intricate bows that go on each package.

We met with packaging designers that spend countless hours making sure they have a basket, box, or tower to fit every occasion and personality.

Harry and David Packaging | ASpicyPerspective.com #Oregon #gifts #travel

We even got to build our own Harry and David basket on the packaging line. Mine kept falling apart–it takes a lot more skill than you think!

Harry and David also shared a surprise announcement with us. They’ve planted their own vineyards and are now producing the first batch of H&D made wines.

We were able to experience all nine of the wines they are offering. These wines will be available for purchase in early 2013. Make sure to try the Pinot Noir.

Harry and David Pear Orchard Party | ASpicyPerspective.com #Oregon #gifts #travel

Everyone we met at Harry and David had a different story of what the company has meant to them, yet the resounding message was clear:

Harry and David is GOOD to their employees.

Harry and David Employees | ASpicyPerspective.com #Oregon #gifts #travel

From our tour guide, to the pickers, packers, recipe testers, bakers, bow tiers, and package designers, most of the employees we met had been working for Harry and David for over ten years, and many have worked there for decades.

One tour guide told me she had resigned after finding out she had cancer and needed to focus on her recovering.

Harry and David Pear Dipping | ASpicyPerspective.com #Oregon #gifts #travel

She said the CEO immediately called her and ask why she was leaving. When she explained she was having some health issues, he told her, “You go get healthy. Your job will be right here waiting for you when you’re ready to come back.”

You just don’t hear stories like that anymore, you know?

    My favorite memory of Harry and David involves my mom and me standing over the box of beautiful Royal Riviera pears that a family friend sent to us during the holidays. You’d think they had sent us gold bars! Our mouths hung open as we lovingly admired their beautiful, russet-tinged skin. But the best part was getting to eat them! I’ll never forget how smooth, sweet and flavorful they were. I’ve never had another pear like those.

    I remember when I first walked into a Harry & David store, I fell in love. All their products sounded simply amazing and were affordable. It was like gourmet on a budget, which for a new cook, I was SUPER intrigued by! I instantly fell in love with their Moose Munch (uh, how could you not?) and was super sad when the store closed nearby :( I have yet to try a famous pear and am dying to!

    BTW, so happy you got to experience a stay with Harry & David! That sounds like the trip of a lifetime!

    When I saw the photo of the Tower of Treats it immediately brought me back to a Christmas when my five children were still fairly young. My father used to send us a gift box from a little store in the Georgia hills that contained a HUGE block of ‘farmers cheese’, a package of crackers that were more like cardboard, and a bottle of Glog. This was not exactly something young children looked forward to each year. It was kind of my father to think of us, but I think it was more to his liking than ours. To make a long story short (even though I have already made it long, sorry) one Christmas a box came that was different than the cheese box. We all gathered around to see what was inside. Wow!!! It was a beautiful tower of boxes all wrapped in a bow. We each took turns opening the different boxes, getting more and more excited with each unwrapping. No huge block of cheese or cardboard crackers! Hooray! It was actually delicious treats that all of us enjoyed immensely. I would love to say that my father continued with the Tower of Treats from then on. Alas, no, that was our only year for the Tower of Treats. Imagine my children’s faces the next Christmas when the ‘cheese box’ was delivered. I had to remind them how grateful we should be for the gift and make sure to send out thank you notes acknowledging his thoughtfulness. My father told me years later that he wondered about whether it was truly enjoyed after receiving a letter from one of my sons thanking him for the ‘hunk of cheese’.

    I have fond memories of the pears. . My mother was always the pie maker in our family, but she had a set 4 or 5 fillings only. About 20 years ago I took over the pie baking for special occasions and I developed a recipe for a pear pie that has been a family favorite ever since. It is the most requested pie that I make and two years ago it won First Prize at the fair. Yum.

    After spending Christmas with my parents, we arrived home to see the famous H & D box at our front door. We could hardly wait to dive in, but unfortunately we had a hard freeze during the three days we were away. Our son, age 10 was so disappointed that I called the next dy to order a duplicate box. I mentioned to the lady what had happened…..she sent a duplicate without charge…

    My parents have sent Harry and David Towers of Treats etc. to employees and friends at Christmastime for many years, and we got the Fruit-of-the-Month subscription for us and for the grandparents one year (the pears, the pears!). When I studied abroad in college, my grandparents wanted to send me the pears, but couldn’t because of international shipping restrictions. So they sent me a tin of glaceed apricots and prunes. So delicious.

    that was a lovely experience. i always see harry & david sign on hwy 5 whenever we do a long drive from CA to OR and WA but never stopped by. i wonder if they do public tours. maybe next time we head that way we’ll stop by. i always associate h&d with office giveaways. my sister got two baskets from her office one time and so she shared one to me. that was my first time to taste the moose munch. it was good!

    I was introduced to the deliciousness of Harry and David 6 years ago when my staff bought me a tower. It was almost too pretty to open. Every year now, they get me a gift basket or tower from Harry & David. And then we were lucky enough to get a store here, only ten minutes from home. My daughters love moose munch and my son in college looks forward to Harry and David goodies that I frequently send. And right now, I am completely addicted to the charred pineapple relish. I put it on everything! I’m at the store once a week and the employees are so friendly and helpful. YAY for Harry and David!!

    For years my mom has received a Harry & David basket from her boss. Even though I no longer live at home she always saves me a pear and some other treat for when I am home for the Holidays. One year I couldn’t come home and in my Christmas care package, there lovingly tucked was the pear. With tears in my eyes I enjoyed that pear listening to Christmas music looking at palm trees and wishing for snow and slush and the smells of my mom’s kitchen. If I win, I will share with my step-daughters and see if I can start a tradition with them.

    I don’t have a memory with Harry and David yet so I’ll say I’m excited to try their pears…I’ll serve them with chocolate fondue and roasted hazelnuts!

    Christmas at my in-laws was never Christmas until the H&D box arrived form “Grandy”. She was an avid gift giver and very generous to send them a lovely box of fruits (ah, the pears!), chocloates, cookies..the treats were endless.

    My husband’s family became addicted to H&D as the classic and classy gift of the season. Whenever a surprise guest appeared on the list- voila, an H&D box to the rescue!

    Harry & David Favorite? Let’s not forget the cookies/baked goodies… Christmastime we took turns at what each one got, so it was never teh same thing. Although some like this better than that, we never got the same thing two years running. How delightful.

    Aw, that’s so sweet of them to let her come back to work after she healed! I just love hearing stories like that. What a wonderful company!

    I remember trying their cashews and it was probably the best cashews I’ve ever tasted! I’m sure all of their other stuff is wonderful too! I’d love to try those delicious pears! If I won, I’d gift this to my friend and her hubby. They are closing on their first home soon. Thank you for the opportunity, for hosting this generous giveaway.

    My favorite Aunt has send H&D gifts to us every year at the Holidays. She has done this for us for many years!
    I also send out H&D gifts to family that lives far away from us.
