Sage Fruit Company

The ori­gins of the Sage Fruit Com­pany are rooted in the his­tory of immi­grant fam­i­lies who came to the fer­tile Yakima Val­ley to farm. They found the cli­mate ide­ally suited to grow­ing tree fruits. In the 1900’s, these fam­i­lies took the oper­a­tions to the next level, build­ing pack­ing facil­i­ties to com­ple­ment the orchard businesses.

Founded in August, 1999, Sage Fruit Com­pany has become a pre­mier grower-​shipper of apples, pears, and cher­ries. Located in the heart of the Pacific North­west, they take great pride in a com­mit­ment to qual­ity, inno­va­tion, and ser­vice. Sage grow­ers farm sev­eral thou­sand acres of orchards through­out the state of Wash­ing­ton, as well as parts of Ore­gon. They offer many vari­ety of apples, and pears through­out the year. Dur­ing the sum­mer months, they pack Dark Sweet and Rainier cherries.

Three fam­ily busi­nesses from Cen­tral Wash­ing­ton own Sage Fruit Com­pany. These include Val­ley Fruit in Wap­ato, Olympic Fruit in Moxee, and Lar­son Fruit in Selah.
