Basin Gold is a relatively new organization, but the experience and history of those behind it have deep roots in the Produce Industry. We market the fresh Potatoes & Onions that are grown and harvested by our Members and close partners in the Pacific Northwest. It is these owner Members who are the actual Growers, handling everything from ground preparation, to harvesting and storage.
Formed in early 1994 as a way to maintain Customer Quality & Service on a year-round basis, Basin Gold has been able to broaden its scope to adapt to an ever-changing marketing environment. Each of our Members are involved in the growing, packing and shipping of fresh market potatoes and onions on a national scale, in partnership with Fresh Solutions Network. Our summer harvest season in the Pacific Northwest runs from July through late October at which time each company will begin a Winter/Spring storage season. Members take turns staggering their packing & shipping schedules throughout the winter and following spring. A balancing act is necessary in order to both fulfill customer needs yet maintain product in storage to last until the following harvest season.
