Curry & Co. partners with Norris Family Farms on blueberries, kiwiberries

January 18, 2018

Curry & Co. has expanded its product offerings of both organic and conventional blueberries by forming a partnership with Norris Family Farms of Umpqua, OR. The partnership also includes kiwiberries, an exciting product that is growing in popularity with retailers across the nation.

Norris Family Farms, established in 1976 by Paul and Sandy Norris, is well known for its high-quality blueberries, which are picked and packed from June until the end of September.  Peak volumes on the southern Oregon farm are generally earlier than the rest of the region and this provides customers with a key transition from California to the Pacific Northwest.

“We’re very excited to have the Norris family as a partner," said Aaron Ensign, Curry & Co. president. "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.”

“Curry & Company played a big role in our entering the blueberry business many years ago," said Norris. "We’re pleased to align with a dynamic and talented group that still appreciates family farms. We look forward to a great 2018 season.”

Brooks, Ore.-based shipper Curry & Co. plans to expand its blueberry offerings through a new partnership with Norris Family Farms.

The Umpqua, Ore.-based grower produces conventional and organic blueberries and kiwiberries, according to a news release. The company harvests blueberries from June to September and normally begins shipping peak volumes before the rest of the region, giving buyers a bridge between the California and Pacific Northwest deals.

Adding Norris Family Farms will increase the Curry & Co. blueberry supply by about 4.5 million pounds, split between organic and conventional. “We’re very excited to have the Norris family as a partner,” Curry & Co. president Aaron Ensign said in the release. “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.” Curry & Co. also brings in berries from Chile and Mexico. The company has offices in Los Angeles and Santiago, Chile.

Late founder Gary Curry was a close friend of Norris and encouraged him to farm blueberries. “Curry & Company played a big role in our entering the blueberry business many years ago,” Norris said in the release. “We’re pleased to align with a dynamic and talented group that still appreciates family farms. We look forward to a great 2018 season.”
