Columbia Fruit has been supplying the marketplace with the highest quality fruit since 1946. The art of growing fruit has drastically changed over the years. In order to continue providing the highest quality fruit our growers continue to increase the efficient use of land, labor, and the environment. We trust CMI Orchards to handle the sales and marketing of our fruit; working daily to ensure a maximum return to the grower.
Organic & Conventional
Annually Washington state harvests more than 100 million boxes of apples that are farmed on over 175,000 acres of land. Approximately, 12% of the state crop is grown using Certified Organic practices. Columbia Fruit prides itself in being a leader in organic fruit production by choosing to farm significant acreage Organically. Our orchard locations in Eastern Washington take advantage of a dry climate and adequate temperatures which help reduce the disease and pest pressure.
We honor the cultivation of the land and the people that eat our products, which results in quality nutrition you can see and taste. These same organic values guide us with regard to soil biology, pest and weed control, and the use of other input materials. Organic standards transcend to the handling, storage, and packing aspects of our business insuring traceable fruit landing on the shelf. The widely available Daisy Girl brand can be found in stores across the nation and in more than 60 countries selling the highest quality organic Apples and Cherries.
