Business as Ministry
Broetje Orchards is unique in the apple growing and packing industry. The orchard was founded on the belief that faith and business can be incorporated in a single mission.
We operate using a “servant leadership” model to guide our activities. This means that our business goals are not separated from our spiritual values. Broetje Orchards is committed to caring for those who work in our business and for those in need in communities around the world.
It is our belief that businesses can and should play a central role in promoting social justice and development. As such, we seek to be a model for others who wish to learn from us and we invite dialogue on ways in which businesses can be strengthened to better meet the needs of the under-served.
