Our story has humble beginnings
What began in the late 80s as a potato farm and packing shed, Tualatin Valley Blueberries was born from the desire to likewise grow, pack, and ship quality fresh-market blueberries on our family farm in Scholls, Oregon. We packed and shipped our first crop of blues in 2000 and have since expanded our capacity to accommodate a dozen additional growers to the tune of several million pounds packed through our facility in 2018. We have since closed the doors to our potato packing venture, partnered with California Giant as our marketer, and in 2017, completely remodeled the old potato shed to blueberry standards, considerably expanding TVB's operational square footage and fresh-market capacity.
A CO-PACKING MATCH MADE IN HEAVEN
We have partnered with California Giant Berry Farms since 2012 and have co-packed over 20 million pounds together. Fruit handled through our facility is packed under the California Giant label and shipped to customers worldwide who know and trust our brand.
