Seaquist Orchards is a busy place, even during the winter months, and especially for Jim Seaquist!
This winter has been especially hectic for Jim, as he has been planning and advising on the building of our new production facility, located next door to the farm market. Be sure to check out our new facility, where you will be able to watch us make jam, press apple cider, and grade our apples. Jim is Chairman of the Board of Cherrco, an innovative cooperative marketing organization that markets cherries throughout the country. If Jim isn’t flying to and from Michigan for meetings, he can be found in his office, working on land purchases or leases for orchards, preparing for the upcoming cherry harvest season and for the processing of the fruit at Seaquist Processing, in Egg Harbor. During his free time during the winter, Jim enjoys ice fishing, hunting, being with his family, reading, and snowmobiling. However, cherries are never very far from Jim’s thoughts!
