Today’s fruit tree business is a mixture of many factors. To succeed, the fruit grower must have the ability to understand the many forces of Mother Nature and try to deal with those he can change. Once his fruit reaches maturity, it has to be picked with care, packaged and marketed — hopefully at a profit.
Those in the fruit tree nursery business must understand the grower’s needs and be ever aware of changes for the better. The staff at Brandt’s Fruit Trees, Inc., has the experience of growing fruit, packaging fruit, marketing fruit and providing fruit trees that will meet the needs of the grower and the fruit buyer. Few, if any other nurseries can make this claim.
In fact, the Brandt’s Fruit Trees, Inc.® staff can trace its orcharding roots back over 80 years. Today, they are involved in the commercial production of a number of soft-fruit crops as well as apples and pears. Brandt’s Fruit Trees, Inc.® is a company with a broad base of experience in the growing and handling of fruit as well as the growing and planting of fruit trees.
These are the people who have worked for years in related areas of the fruit industry. People who do a great deal of research, planning and testing before they will recommend the planting of any variety. Before they eagerly plant it themselves. Brandt’s Fruit Trees, Inc. does an excellent job of being informed on fruit industry discoveries through the creation of the Associated International Group of Nurserymen (A.I.G.N.®), which has members spread throughout northern and southern Europe, Australia, New Zealand, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, China, South Africa and North America. It is the first group of its kind in the nursery business.
The A.I.G.N.® provides its members with the most up-to-date information on varieties available worldwide. It gives the member nurseries the opportunity to test promising selections from around the world. When a testing variety from A.I.G.N.® becomes accepted in terms of fruit quality, production and market acceptance in the U.S., then it will become a part of the Brandt’s Fruit Trees, Inc.® family of varieties. A variety that could spell success and profit.
The chosen varieties of Brandt’s Fruit Trees, Inc.® are grown in one of the lushest growing areas of the world, the Willamette Valley of Oregon. Here, the soil is deep, fertile and well suited to the production of nursery stock. The mild climate translates into a long growing season. This not only results in improved stock quality and size, but allows a harvest where the tree goes dormant naturally, without the need for defoliants.
Brandt’s Fruit Trees, Inc.® has a true interest in the welfare of the grower. The people of Brandt’s Fruit Trees, Inc.® deal with all aspects of fruit. They have good relationships with nurseries here and in other countries, and they are always striving for the most up-to-date and successful varieties. The staff is known for their knowledge and friendliness. They are the kind of people the grower likes doing business with and they sell the kind of product the grower likes to put in the ground.
