Wrapping up a record “Pick Your Moments” season, the Orchard View Cherry team reflects on its many exceptional moments in 2019.
Both Oppy and Orchard View are rejoicing in more ways than one as another fast-paced, top-quality season got underway—which includes raising a glass to their decade-long union.
“We are very proud to be celebrating our 10th year as the exclusive marketer of Orchard View cherries,” said James Milne, vice president of marketing, categories and business development at Oppy. “We’ve established a strong partnership and it’s been a great fit because their season is only an eight-week window, they can capitalize on Oppy’s 52-week presence of meeting the top retailers in North America.”
A union made at the beginning of the year between Orchard View and Omeg Family Orchards is about to see the first fruits of its labor which means more high quality cherries from The Dalles’ best multi-generation growers.
Operating in The Dalles since 1908, Omeg Family Orchards owner and operator Mike Omeg is a fifth generation cherry grower. With a master’s degree in entomology, he is an award-winning agriculturist and organic pest management conservationist, making him the epitome of a good fruit grower.
