Gem Orchards is a family owned and operated orchard located in the Heart of the Emmett Valley about 20 minutes North of Boise, Idaho.
Growing up in Central Washington on an Apple and Pear Orchard I learned first hand the “HOW” of growing and raising fruit on my family’s 8-acre Orchard.
After 4 years at Central Washington University I graduated with a B.S. Degree in Horticulture where I learned the “WHY” of managing fruit production.
Moving to Idaho in 1997, I planted my first orchard in Weiser.
In 2015, after moving to Emmett, Idaho, I bought a 2.5-acre cherry orchard partnering with the 85 years of experience of the Benson Orchard Legacy Orchard and we have been expanding ever since.
