Stemilt Growers. “Here are our strategies with 2200 hectares”
Stemilt Growers is one of the leading US companies growing, packaging and shipping fruit. It is located in Wenatchee, WA, and was set up in 1964 by the Mathison family, which has been growing fruit for over a century. Production is focused on cherries, peaches, apples and pears. The company will take part in the International Cherry Symposium (May 2nd-6th, 2022).
“We have two main production areas – we own and/or manage around 2000 acres (approx. 800 hectares) in California, plus there are external growers providing around 10,000 tons a year. In Washington, we own and/or manage around 3500 acres (approx. 1400 hectares) with a wide grower base supplying 35-38,000 tons a year in total,” explains Semilt manager Todd George.
