About CoGo NW Distribution LLC:

Columbia Gorge Organic is an honest-to-goodness family owned Business. Since 1989, the Stewart family has farmed 180 acres organically in the beautiful Hood River, Oregon. In addition to Organic Farming, we make pure squeezed and pressed Organic juices right here on the farm.

Unlike the big guys, we do everything ourselves: we squeeze, press, or puree our own fruits and veggies, compost green waste, and buy directly from small organic farms what we can't grow on our land. CoGo NW, our Distribution Company, sells all the products direct to stores throughout the USA - truly a one of a kind company.
