I get a lot of questions from growers,
horticulturists, and university researchers in developing or marginal
apple-growing areas, desiring to either introduce apple culture into
their area, or revitalize an existing industry and make it more
competitive in the global apple marketplace. Typically there's not
a lot of money to work with, and support from foundations, the
university, or investors will not come unless the project can be shown
to be viable.
I welcome these inquiries, and if I don't know the
answers, can usually point them in the right direction.
We've shipped all over the world and have become
quite experienced in navigating the complexities of international
phytosanitary protocol. If you need help in either importing or
exporting something, we can save you a lot of trouble.
Lots of nurseries could be expanding their client
base if they were willing to ship internationally. Sometimes this
is easy, and other times it is very difficult; we can usually tell you
quickly what you are up against.
