The list of organic honeycrisp growers that we love is a long one, but here is one of the many we want to thank. Thank you, Mark Zirkle and Rainer Fruit Company, for this fantastic organic apple!
The Zirkle family has been farming in Selah, WA since the late 1800’s. The Rainer Fruit Company was founded in 1974 by Bill Zirkle, and now, still family owned and operated, it is run by his son Mark. Rainier Fruit Company has grown into one of the largest shippers of Northwest fruit, with farms producing apples, cherries and pears. The Selah ranches encompass several different microclimates, where each variety and commodity is planted in the micro-climate best suited to its needs, and in order to provide the most flavorful eating experience.
