From the Top...
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.
From Sky to Earth...
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.
