Reflecting on 2018

We have a lot to be thankful for in 2018 and want to take a moment to share our gratitude list with you!


We are grateful for a happy, healthy and hardworking crew. Without them we couldn’t do what we do. We are particularly grateful to Carlos, Evelio and Abel for their loyal leadership of the field crew. And we are grateful to our new Production Manager, Adrian, for moving all the way from the Midwest to join us. Here are some of our team members on the harvester this week pulling the plants from the field.

We are grateful for the opportunity to build a new production facility. We are excited to grow our business so that we can accommodate the relentless demand for healthy Oregon-grown fruit tree rootstock. We are putting the finishing touches on this building as I type. Much of the rootstock you will receive this spring will be processed and stored in this 12,000 square-foot facility.


We are grateful for amicable weather and great growing conditions. In farming we all know that some years Mother Nature is kinder than others, and this year we got lucky. We know that many of you were affected by drought, wild fires, hurricanes, flooding, and more this year. We send our best wishes your way for easier times in 2019.

We are of course very grateful to you, our customers! We are proud to grow the finest rootstock we can for you. We love being at the very beginning of your growing cycle, where anything is possible. Here’s to 2019. May it be fruitful!
