If farming is a gamble, then Burchell Nursery in Oakdale has been on a winning streak since 1942. Today, the operation is one of fewer than 15 nurseries of its kind in the state and sells two million trees a year to orchards throughout the country.
For more than 65 years, Burchell has been supplying farmers with peach trees as well as many of the plum, nectarine, prune, apple, cherry, apricot, pomegranate, olive, almond and walnut trees that produce a significant portion of our nation’s supply of fruits and nuts. Irvin Burchell opened the nursery in 1942, and it continued under his son Bill’s leadership.
