Pioneering Great Fruit

Washington Fruit is dedicated to growing the finest quality apples, pears, and cherries. In order to make this possible, our orchard managers, field staff and independent growers work closely together to achieve this goal. Washington Fruit uses modern horticultural practices coupled with an aggressive orchard development and renovation program in an effort to stay at the forefront of the industry. This includes maintaining GAP, Primus GSF or SQF food safety certifications at all orchard sites, and SQF food safety and quality certifications at all packing locations.

Integrated Pest Management

Our I.P.M. (Integrated Pest Management) and in-house entomology staff work toward the common goal of providing top quality fruit to our customers. All pest control recommendations are in full compliance with federal and state labels. Our team also follows Washington State University’s Decision Aid System (DAS) for better IPM through science and technology.

When feasible, our team adopts measures that substantially lessen any significant adverse impact on the environment. Many of our IPM best management practices are used in organic farming, to build and use natural biologicals in our ecosystem as well as show our commitment to sustainability.

Where We Grow

Washington Fruit markets apples, pears and cherries from the growing regions of Central Washington and Northern Oregon. Orchard locations are throughout the Columbia Basin and the various plateaus and river systems from the Cascade Mountain Range.

Federal irrigation projects have enabled Central Washington and Northern Oregon to access one of our most valued resources. In fact, access to water is one of the most important factors when deciding where to plant an orchard. Other considerations include: elevation, soil type, number of degree growing days, and frost free days. Washington Fruit carefully analyzes each location so our orchards produce the quality of fruit our customers expect.
