R. B. Tukey Horticulture Orchard

This orchard is here in Pullman for members of the local campus or others to do teaching, research, and/or extension work. Those are our top priorities. If we have surplus fruit or vegetables that will not be used for teaching, research, or extension projects we sell the surplus produce to the general public and apply that money to our operations funds.

Orchard Produce

Fruit sales are done at our current location
The final fruit sale was March 2, 2018.

We hope to have more sales of fruit in the future but stay tuned for details. Any future sales will be at a different location.

General information about fruit sales

Typically, we have a fruit sale in the middle to end of July for sweet cherries for 1 to 3 Fridays and Saturdays depending upon crop volume. Our fall fruit sales usually begin some time in September with our fall crop of apples.

Orchard Location

Our location will be changing to the WSU Spillman Farm which is 2 miles down Johnson Road off of Bishop Boulevard. We will plant a new orchard on that site. For the 3-5 years while the new orchard grows we will continue to farm at the current location with trees that are still on WSU owned land but we will have a different access road.

Our previous entrance at the intersection of Terre View Drive and Airport Road will be closed some time this spring or summer as airport runway construction continues and takes over this entrance area. A new entrance will be a shared road with other WSU Facilities that will not be accessible to the general public.
