Domex Superfresh Growers
The history of the Kershaw Companies in the Yakima Valley began more than 125 years ago when our family headed west from Philadelphia and one of the eight children in the family, my great, great grandfather Robert Kershaw, decided to settle in the Naches Valley. Originally, Robert Kershaw focused on raising cattle, but the expanded availability of irrigation water following the passage of the Reclamation Act of 1902 encouraged him to move into fruit ranching. We started with pear orchards and added apples shortly thereafter.
Over the years, the Kershaw Companies have grown into a vertically integrated organization to include farming, warehousing, sales, marketing and logistic services. In 1981 my brother Bob and I, members of the fourth generation of Kershaws in the Yakima Valley, launched Domex Superfresh Growers to help us bring our fruit and other growers fruit to market. The Company is now led by fifth generation Robert Kershaw, President.
