Based in Yakima, Orchard Rite operates two manufacturing and assembly plants, which have supplied approximately 70 percent of the wind machines in operation worldwide.
In 1967, the company began making oil-fired orchard heaters. Rising petroleum prices soon made the heaters an expensive option for frost protection. Five years later, Orchard-Rite started selling wind machines, the industry’s most effective way to curb the damaging effects of frost.
The company grew and in 1990 Orchard-Rite addressed another need in the ag industry – a practical and effective way to remove nuts from trees. Orchard-Rite’s innovative design and sound engineering practices produced a shaker of unparalleled quality and dependability.
Over the years, three generations of the founders’ family and a dedicated team of longtime employees have kept the Orchard-Rite mission alive. We are dedicated to serving you by listening to your needs, producing premier products and providing superior service.
Today, we are guided by the Pure Orchard-Rite Principles upon which we were founded – integrity, honesty and commitment to serving our growers.
