Meet Cam Clennon - Utility Player


It seems as though every organization has a utility player - a member of the team that dabbles in a little bit of everything. Meet Cam Clennon, the Orondo Ruby team member who is equal parts analyst, equal parts operations, and equal parts “we need some of this” person.

As analyst, during harvest season Cam pays close attention to the production of each block of trees. The data collected during harvest is integral to understanding the growth of our cherries, and how to improve each block in seasons ahead. An abundance of information is also critical to the development of next season’s projections - a painstaking task led by Cam each year.

Despite the number crunching, you’ll also find Cam with his “boots on the ground” at the packing shed, or out in the orchard. From helping out with packing, shipping and other orchard operations, Cam earns his utility title with earnest.

Cam’s depth in the Orondo Ruby cherry business also suits him perfectly as a liason between the marketing side of the house and the growing and operation side of things. Bridging the gap between the two can at times be more art than science - something Cam is perfectly suited for.

When not in the orchard or in the office, Cam enjoys spending time with his wife, daughter and soon to arrive baby boy. Whether it’s camping, boating or spending time in Chelan with family, Cam enjoys the recharge of taking advantage of family time.

Growing cherries is a diverse, challenging and rewarding work experience. Cam’s diverse skill set and fun-loving personality is a valuable part of our team. We all love what we do; growing Orondo Ruby cherries for all of our great customers. Thanks for being a part of our adventure. Cheers to summer! Cheers to Orondo Ruby cherries!

"a new Northwest cherry variety discovered by fourth generation fruit grower Marcus Griggs, is now available at select grocers throughout the country"

This patented cherry variety is grown exclusively by G&C Farms, and has only been available since 2010 in very limited quantities. This year, ideal weather and tree maturity has resulted in a crop double the size of last year’s, increasing production from 30 thousand boxes to 60 thousand boxes.

“This time of year is always exciting for us, and the 2014 harvest will hopefully be one of our best thus far,” said Cory Wray, director of marketing and branding for the Orondo Ruby. “The Rubies have great color and are full of flavor - we’re excited to get them into our customers’ hands.”
