Marcus Griggs

We’re the Griggs family, also known as G&C Farms.

We’ve got a legacy of more than 100 years of experience in the Washington fruit industry. It began in the late 1800's, when the Griggs family homesteaded in the Orondo area of eastern Washington. Our ancestors built the first wood-framed home and planted the first cherry tree in Douglas County—and we’re proud to say both are still standing today. The early Griggs planted walnut trees, corn, and some of the first soft fruit trees along the fertile banks of the Columbia River Valley.

Four generations later, we’re still growing.

New generations of Griggs are cultivating some of the highest quality cherries and other specialty fruits in the world. And we’re delighted to add the Orondo Ruby to our offering.

G&C Farms, LLC was founded by Marcus Griggs. His family-owned-and-operated business exclusively grows the Orondo Ruby® for cherry lovers all over the world. We hope you enjoy.
