Superfresh Growers and Norris Farms Partner on Blueberries

Superfresh Growers® and Norris Farms® have joined forces to deliver customers a premium organic and conventional blueberry program worldwide. Superfresh Growers will exclusively sell Norris Farms berries starting with the 2019 season, slated to begin on the first of June.

“Our collective farming, sales, and logistical expertise, combined with mutual multi-generational farming knowledge, make our families a great match,” explains Robert Kershaw, CEO of Superfresh Growers.

Paul Norris, owner of Norris Farms, adds, “Our family is excited to work with the Superfresh Growers family. From the day we met, it has been apparent that our companies share cultures centered around quality, service, and strong customer relationships.”

Norris Farms grows blueberries in Southern Oregon’s Umpqua River valley, where harvest begins early to mid-June and extends to late September. The Umpqua River valley is known for its warm sunny days and evenings cooled by coastal breezes, making it an ideal climate for quality blueberry production. This results in low summer humidity, reducing the risk of condition and quality problems and extending the harvest season.

Superfresh Growers and Norris Farms look forward to adding blueberries to Superfresh Growers’ world-renowned apples, pears, cherries, and apricots.

Norris Farms, a family-owned business based in Roseburg, Oregon, is recognized worldwide for its quality blueberries. Superfresh Growers, a fifth-generation family-owned company based in Yakima, Washington, is a vertically integrated agricultural organization specializing in farming, warehousing, sales, marketing, and logistical services. They now offer various conventional and organic apples, pears, cherries, apricots, and blueberries.
