About Juanitas Antonio Dominguez first came to Hood River, Oregon in 1937. In 1953, after marrying Juana in California, their family moved to The Hood River Valley, one of the first three Mexican families to do so. For Juana, having worked in a Californian tortilla factory, the dream was for a family-run operation that would turn out "a good tortilla".
Juana continued to make the family supply of tortillas at home, without ever losing sight of her dream. In 1977, ten years later, as the children grew older, her dream began to become a reality.

Why Buy Local?
Becoming a Locavore (or rather, a "Mostly-Locavore" when you live in Central Oregon) may sound like a daunting task, but it is a noble and rewarding one. There are myriad of benefits to eating and buying local goods:
Supporting farmers who grow for taste, diversity, and health vs transportation durability and uniformity
Creating local jobs vs supporting large corporate systems
Enhanced nutrition vs mineral/vitamin deficiencies
Robust, ever-changing flavors vs blandness and consistency
Sustainable farming practices and soil-rehabilitation vs pollution and soil degredation
