About Us

Broetje Orchards was founded by Ralph and Cheryl Broetje in 1968 and has grown to become one of the largest privately owned and operated orchards in the country. Over the years, the family has used profits from the business to birth additional ministries, both for profit and non-profit, to better support under-served communities and expand our mission of “bearing fruit that will last.”

In recognition of God's role in the success of our business, the Broetje Orchards' brand, First Fruits of Washington, continues to offer our “first fruits” (in the form of profits) to communities in need. Through partnerships in communities and countries around the world, we are changing lives and opening doors for others to pursue their own dreams for the future.
