Your visit to Loomis isn’t complete until you visited the High-Hand Conservatory and know of the history that still lives in the grounds and have a walk through their nursery or participated in one of the charming events and finally sit down for a sumptuous brunch at the cafe. The History that Still Speaks The Loomis Fruit Growers’ Association built the High-Hand Fruit Sheds in the 1920s which was to be their main packing plant.
They packed and distributed mountain-grown fruits of the region under the High-Hand Brand. The history of the place is carried forward even to this day at the High-Hand Conservatory. Unwind at the High-Hand Conservatory The nursery is at the heart of High-Hand which has a large collection of quality trees, shrubs and perennials and other rare specimens that can make your garden truly extraordinary.
