Dietrich Orchards

Meet the Growers

Dietrich Orchards

Dietrich Orchards was started by Al Dietrich's great-great grandfather Joseph Dietrich five generations ago and the family business has remained intact ever since.  However, Al, his brother Joe and his cousins Mike and Jim, have split the business into two operations.  Al and his brother run Ridgeview Orchards and his cousins run Leo Dietrich and Sons.  The two operations still operate through Dietrich Orchards, the packing, storing and shipping portion of the business.
