The Humble Heroes who Grow your Favorite Healthy Fruit
With the average orchard size being about 100 acres, it’s families just like yours who are at the heart of Washington’s apple-growing community. There are 1,700 apple growers in Washington, and for them, growing apples isn’t a job. It’s a way of life.
Washington apple growers work year-round to produce the quality fruit that the world has come to know and crave.
