Andersen Organics

Andersen Organics was established by Brian and Denise Andersen in 1984. Their 500+ acre family farm is located in the heart of the sunny Columbia Basin near Othello, WA.

The Andersen family has always had a deep connection to the land on which they farm and this ultimately led them to become certified organic in 2003. Since this time, they have become experts on using composted manures to create fertile, healthy soil. This composted manure is applied months before planting so that when it comes time to plant, their crops have access to vital nutrients from day one.

Andersen Organics also utilizes drip tape irrigation within their fields. While this method is much more laborious and time consuming, it is an important tool in facilitating the conservation of water and producing superior quality produce.

Knowing that Bridges Produce and the Andersen family share the same core values of protecting natural resource and providing high quality organic produce make this a spectacular partnership.

Holtzinger Fruit

Adolfo Alvarez started his career with very little, except his willingness to work hard and a desire to learn everything he could. In 1998, after many years of working for other farmers, he decided it was time to buy his own 80-acre farm in Prosser, Washington.

Making use of his years of experience, he quickly began to make improvements to the farm. He immediately made the transition to organic and he dramatically improved the efficiency of his irrigation system by converting to micro-sprinklers with help from the Natural Resource Conservation Service. 

It was the way the orchard responded to the organic method that assured Adolfo that he had made the right decision. Adolfo is now the owner of approximately 200 acres of organic apples, pears and cherries. 

He works tirelessly to expand and improve his orchard, continually grafting new varieties to improve his quality and yield. Adolfo says, "I guarantee that once you taste my fruit, you'll never taste anything better."

Protecting and improving the land and soil is the centerpiece of Adolfo's farming philosophy. He has a deep-seated desire to leave the land in better condition for the next generation. You can't talk to Adolfo for long without him coming back to his fundamental purpose, "It's for the kids."

His concern for the health, safety and welfare of not just his own children, but for the farmworkers' children and all the children of the community, is what inspired him to do his utmost to improve the environment and the quality of our food supply with an abundance of delicious and healthy produce.

Twin River Produce

Twin River Produce is run by farther and son team Paul and Ben Escoe, who grow and source berries from farms in Oregon, Washington, Mexico, and Argentina.

The Escoes began growing organic blueberries in 2004. In 2012, they added supply from Argentina to keep up with the blueberry demand throughout the winter months. The name Twin River Produce was born in 2015 when a new partnership with two Washington blueberry farms gave them access to a larger growing region and the ability to meet the needs of more customers.

During the winter of 2016-17, Twin River Produce expanded their offerings by supplying blueberries, raspberries and blackberries from a new partner in Guadalajara, Mexico.

The Escoe family is dedicated to working with family farms who care about their land, fruit, and community. Their partner farms are passionate about utilizing farming practices that add, rather than deplete, nutrients to the soil. The berries imported from both Mexico and Argentina are grown on farms that are Fair for Life certified. Fair for Life is a fair trade program that allows producers and workers who are at a socio-economic disadvantage to access a wider range of social and economic benefits.

We are pleased to be able to represent Twin River Produce’s berries not only because of their premium fruit, but because of their dedication to sustainable growing practices, and the respect they have for all individuals, from the farmworkers to the end consumer. Learn more at www.trproduce.com
