MARTIN FAMILY ORCHARDS

Martin Family Orchards began in 1986 with three acres of Red-Gold nectarines when Rick and Terri Martin purchased a piece of land in Cashmere, WA, to build the family home.

Rick and his father began taking nectarines to Pike Place Market and making deliveries to a few grocery stores in the Puget Sound region in the summer of 1986. Rick and Terri enjoyed the interaction with consumers that Pike Place and other local farmers markets provided, as opposed to sending all their fruit to a big warehouse.

Falling in love with being orchardists, in 1988 Rick and Terri bought a ten acre apple and pear orchard just down the road, and a two acre apricot orchard in East Wenatchee. Rick spent his winters building homes in the Wenatchee valley and his summers tending to his orchards and delivering fruit to Western Washington.

In 1993, a large orchard in Orondo, about 25 miles East of Cashmere, went on the market. Rick and Terri found their chance to become full time farmers. In 1994, they bought the Orondo orchard with  multiple varieties of cherries, peaches, nectarines and apples.

Rick and Terri subsequently bought a neighboring orchard and a piece of rocky land filled with sage brush on the east side of the original orchard. It took a couple years to clear the rock and flatten the eleven acres of land but it is now the home of two beautiful blocks of cherry and a five acre parcel of Red-Haven peaches. Rick’s carpentry skills also came in handy to build an 8,000 sq foot warehouse including two coolers, a loading dock and packing shed.

Today Martin Family Orchards has over ninety acres of Bing and Rainier cherries, six varieties of peaches, Red-Gold and Independent Nectarines, Perfection apricots, Bartlett and D’Anjou pears, Gala and Fuji apples, and a variety of tomatoes, squash, and peppers. They deliver fruit to over forty Thriftway and Red Apple stores across the state of Washington as well as selling at more than 50 farmers markets each week.

Martin Family Orchards is a family run business with all three of Rick and Terri’s sons involved in day to day operations. The fruit isn't picked until it’s ready to eat fresh off the tree. This makes a huge difference in the flavor and texture of the fruit. Their goal is to provide families in Washington with the highest quality, tree-ripened fruit they have ever tasted.
