Our business is our family. We love and treasure it, while doing everything we can to help it grow and flourish. This means regular development, ongoing education and investment into new technology and trends. The current facilities house a medium sized fruit packing grader, cool storage and a growing transport division. With infrastructure investments nearing $1M proposed for the next 2 years, our family is set to grow significantly. But don’t let the fancy figures fool you, JV Orchards will always be a family business with strong core values and a commitment to customer satisfaction and quality.
The business is owned by brothers Joe and John Ventre. Joe’s position is overall manager which would traditionally be called the Managing Director. John is orchard manager and Director and has been responsible for a significant increase of production as a result of increased plantings. This will result in the orchard production doubling over a three-year period.
Anthony Ventre, Joe’s son, is in charge of fruit packing and marketing. Anthony is also responsible for the transport division of the business which comprises 4 trucks, including refrigerated “B-Double” trailers.
