Reservations are highly recommended, especially during peak seasons. The tours require a short bus ride to the factory, so space is limited.

You can call 1-877-322-8000 to make your reservation or via email at tours@harryanddavid.com

The tour is endlessly interesting and informative about the history of the company, food production, and how the company is continuing to change. It is great for both adults and children. Even little ones will have a great time!

While at the factory you will be able to see them making their famous Moose Munch, candies, and baked goods. You will also see some of their orchards on the way to the buildings where you can view their various packaging areas. It is a rather sleepy factory until Christmas time when their employment soars to fulfill all of the Christmas orders.
