Como Orchards is a 250 acre ranch in the Bitterroot Valley of Montana, the ancestral home of the Salish people. As a young architect, Frank Lloyd Wright designed a community here for “noted savants” to connect to, and be inspired by, the land. A mix of cattle grazed prairie land, apple orchard, timber, and meadows, Como Orchards invites you to dangle your feet in a cool mountain stream and connect to the wild.
Local discount available and scholarships. Please write organizer with any questions. Thank you!
