Investing in our employees as whole individuals

Preschool Apple SaucerOur success is directly attributable to the dedication of our year-round and seasonal employees. Without their skill and hard work, we would not be the business we are today.

Broetje Orchards employs over 1,100 year-round employees.  By investing in their personal and professional development, we know we benefit our business productivity.  But we also impact the families and communities around us who rely on these individuals for stability and livelihoods.  As such we invest in the following.

a.) Job security and family friendly policies

  • fair wages
  • limited night shift
  • year-round employment through extended growing season and crop varieties
  • accommodating parent involvement in school activities
b.) Healthcare and workplace safety
  • on-site nurse practitioner
  • dental van
  • safety trainings
c.) Education: professional development and family education
d.) Housing: investment in seasonal, year-round, and home ownership opportunities
