Borton Fruit joins Chelan Fresh

When families with over 100 years of farming experience come together, you know you will continue to receive the freshest fruit Washington state has to offer. Yakima’s sunny valleys coupled with the mountain altitudes of North Central Washington come together to provide fruit availability with longer growing seasons and cool, crisp air to produce tasty, high-color fruit. Family operations that pride themselves on their state-of-the-art processing facilities and innovative growing practices will continue to pack Washington’s Finest Mountain Grown Fruit.

This merger will also increase the volume of some of the most in demand apples in the marketplace today: Honeycrisp, new strains of high color Gala and Fuji in addition to everyone’s darling Rockit Apple™.

The merger also combines two sales companies, Chelan Fresh and Borton Fruit, with long histories of customer service. Chelan Fresh and Borton Fruit know that by providing exceptional customer service we can set ourselves apart with retail accounts. We will continue our appointment loading program to enable trucks to load fruit in the most efficient way possible - on time and on their way within and hour of checking into our facilities. Our customers are important to us and we will continue to strive to exceed your expectations. 

As September 1st nears, we will provide more updates on our merger. Please feel free to reach out to your Chelan Fresh or Borton Fruit sales representative if you have questions.
