About Broetje Orchards

As a recognized leader in the apple industry for over 40 years, Broetje Orchards is a family-owned and operated organization with more than 6,000 acres of apples and cherries.  Broetje’s business-as-ministry philosophy seeks to connect the organization, and its employees, to a larger purpose of service to others. Broetje Orchards is truly a community of people connected by a common mission: ‘bearing fruit that will last’.



Family-owned and operated, our belief is that business does not have to thrive at the expense of the planet or its people, but can chart a course that provides employees, families, owners and communities an opportunity to grow and thrive. Find out more about our story below.



Broetje Orchards offers over 15 different varieties of apples and cherries.  Our orchard operations account for approximately 5% of all U.S. production of apples, coming from nearly 6,000 acres of pristine ground located in Eastern Washington State. Find out more below.



We at Broetje Orchards have implemented an ethos of corporate responsibility at all touchpoints of our organization. Moreover, we have dedicated ourselves to a way of conducting business that respects the people who make our business possible—our employees.
