Growing apples doesn’t happen without blossoming trees. Yet, fewer blossoms means enhanced flavor and optimal fruit quality. To achieve that, Auvil Fruit Company conducts blossom thinning each year – by hand.
Some may find it surprising to learn that Auvil Fruit, the producer of Gee Whiz apples, cherries, and cider, whose roots date back 90 years, is driven by innovation. But, we know that producing the best fruit in the world requires us to continuously advance and evolve our processes and embrace innovation.
In today’s world of rapid change, fewer and fewer companies withstand the test of time. Auvil Fruit Company, the grower of the Gee Whiz brand of apples, cherries, and cider is an exception. Our roots run deep, dating back nearly 90 years when brothers Grady, Robert and David Auvil purchased 22 acres of land In Orondo. The singular philosophy the Auvil brothers built this company on still stands today. It’s about growing and sharing the best fruit in the world, and ensuring that our passion meets flavor.
