Welcome to the website of the Medford Pear Orchard of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. The Medford Orchard is one of 56 production projects of the LDS Church Welfare System. Pears produced at the Medford Pear Orchard are processed and canned in church canneries and used throughout the U.S. to provide relief to needy families and humanitarian aid. The Medford orchard provides pears for the church welfare system. Much of the work performed on the farm is done by local volunteers, including the harvest of over 1.5 million pounds of pears a year.
 
We have designed this page to help provide information for members and others who would like to serve at the farm. Please check the links on the sidebar for information about upcoming projects, stake and ward assignments, training, and the harvest.
