Our chosen varieties are propagated in one of the lushest growing regions in the world for nursery stock: the Willamette Valley of Oregon. We locate our orchards here because the deep soil is fertile and well suited to the production of nursery stock, and the mild climate translates into a long growing season. These combined factors not only improve stock quality and size but allows us to harvest our trees after they go dormant naturally, without the use of defoliants. Growing trees in the Willamette Valley allows us to keep the trees in the ground through the winter, unlike many nurseries who are forced to dig their trees in the fall and hold them in storage until spring planting, in order to avoid freeze damage. Our trees are kept in storage for a maximum of three months, minimizing the risk of damage and dehydration.
