It’s science! At Auvil Fruit, our Nutrient Testing Department performs dozens of tests throughout the growing process to make sure our customers enjoy the tastiest apples possible. We monitor for range of sugar content and other nutrients, so we can tell our customers exactly which flavors to expect in each variety of apple we grow.
We believe in delivering only the freshest, most natural apples to our customers. From our chemical-free hot water sanitizing technique to our state-of-the-art photo spectroscopy and camera system that snaps 500 pictures per apple, our production line goes the extra mile to ensure you have the tastiest, most nutritious apple available with a perfect balance of crunch and nutritious flavor. Watch our video to see how it’s done!
Mark Clayton was destined to be a farmer. His parents were raised on wheat and cattle farms, and turned to apple farming in the 1960s. In the small town of Orondo, Washington, Mark grew up on his family’s farm, which is alongside the gorgeous Columbia River and nestled at the foot of the majestic Cascade Mountains.
Phenomenal. It’s a word that Grady Auvil, one of Auvil Fruit’s founding brothers, would use to describe the taste of Gee Whiz Cherries. He was known as the strictest on flavor, and his strictness has withstood the test of time. Cherries are only ready for consumers when the taste is perfectly sweet.
