Having only begun buying from Chancy and Toni Croft in 2013, this is Haden Fig’s newest source for the best quality fruit. And while it has taken awhile, it’s hard to deny its appeal. Located in the southern aspect of the northern Willamette Valley, Croft is situated in the coastal foothills. It’s a unique site, to say the least. Organically-farmed for 30 years and certified Salmon Safe since 2008, now three generations of the Croft family carry on a legacy of responsible growing and management that dates back to its beginning. While Croft is a relatively large vineyard by Oregon standards, Haden Fig purchases fruit from four tiny blocks made up of several different clones.
