Curry & Company and Norris Family Farms Partner up on Conventional and Organic Fruit
- by Lillie Apostolos
BROOKS, OR – A new partnership has been forged between Curry & Company and Umpqua, Oregon-based Norris Family Farms to expand its existing organic and conventional offerings of blueberries, as well as bring kiwiberries to the line-up.
“We’re very excited to have the Norris family as a partner. Their export-quality fruit, exceptional farm and facilities, and shared values make for an excellent fit. We’re both family owned and operated, and are committed to supporting our communities,” said Aaron Ensign, President at Curry & Company, in a recent press release.
What started out in 1976 by Paul & Sandy Norris has since blossomed into a renown for high quality blueberries for Norris Family Farms. The bursting-with-flavor snacks are picked and packed from June through September, with peak volumes usually a bit earlier in the Southern Oregon farm than in the rest of the region, consequently providing customers with a key transition from California to the Pacific Northwest.
“Curry & Company played a big role in our entering the blueberry business many years ago. We’re pleased to align with a dynamic and talented group that still appreciates family farms. We look forward to a great 2018 season,” said Dr. Paul Norris.
With offices in Los Angeles, California, and Santiago, Chile, the Curry & Co. headquarters calls Brooks, Oregon, home. The company’s determined focus on its year-round berry program is currently being shipped domestically and internationally out of Chile and Mexico, as Curry & Co. continues to pursue the highest quality, freshness, and flavor for its fruits and vegetables moving forward with this partnership and beyond.
