Meet Our Growers

The success of each product is directly related to the quality of fruit used. Therefore, Oregon Growers & Shippers works extensively to identify growers who use the best and most sustainable growing practices available. In order to help determine which farmers to work with, one range of measurement Oregon Growers & Shippers has been using is to work with The Food Alliance in Portland, Oregon.

While not all of the farmers working with Oregon Growers & Shippers have received The Food Alliance Certification, the Alliance requirements gives Oregon Growers & Shippers a set of guidelines to begin determining appropriate growers for a long-term partnership.

Some of the Farmers Oregon Growers & Shippers works with includes:

1. Craig McCurdy, McCurdy Farms-Hood River, OR-Pears
2. Gary Wells, Wells & Sons Farms-Hood River, OR Apples
3. Peter and Peggy Kinsey, Kinsey's Farms-Mosier, ORCherries
4. Scenic Fruit Company-Sandy, OR-Strawberries
5. West Nut Farms-Dundee, OR-Hazelnuts
6. Willamette Valley Fruit Company-Willamette Valley, OR Marionberry

Because the connection of the growers to the consumer is so important to the mission and
goals of the company, Oregon Growers & Shippers works to educate consumers about the farmers that partner with
Oregon Growers & Shippers through label descriptions, outreach efforts, and information on the website.

Additionally, to further support the long-term relationship between Oregon Growers & Shippers and the growers, Oregon Growers & Shippers pays growers for their produce within thirty days of receiving goods. While this may seem like a simple concept, growers are often forced to wait ninety days or more to receive payment on their goods. Because supporting the growers is key to the company's mission, Oregon Growers & Shippers is committed to paying growers in a timely manner.
