We operate as independent sales representatives, with over 30 leading nurseries in the United States and Europe supporting our services. We quote directly from each nurseries catalogs and price lists, so there are no extra costs to our customers. Our services include sales, consultation, field visits, and customer service throughout the shipping and growing season.

Our office staff is available to give you prompt reports of all orders placed each season, request information from the nurseries on your behalf, and coordinate purchases and deliveries. It's like having your own personal purchasing agent to handle all the time-consuming details and paperwork.

Our sales representatives are growers like you, who have faced the same decisions you face and bring with them over 75 years of combined experience in commercial fruit tree growing. Their field experience and knowledge of current market trends are just a phone call away.
