Meet CMI Cherry Grower Jack Raines in this New Video
WENATCHEE, WA - There’s never a dull moment in the orchard of a cherry grower, and as CMI's Jack Raines can tell you, it’s those differences from year to year that keep him going.
The company recently released a “Meet the Grower” video starring Raines and his orchard, to show CMI consumers an orchard in harvest and hear what motivates its growers.
“The biggest joy I get out of the orcharding, is the challenge. The challenge to try to create something better than it was, create bigger fruit than we used to have,” says Raines in the video. “I guess my joy comes more from the achievement of getting out here and trying to make something better.”
In the video, viewers can watch Raines sort through his crop and work amongst the trees, as he gives a more personal meaning to the labor behind the fruit. Raines is a cherry grower from the Northwest, and as the company said in a statement, is one of the top and best growers for CMI.
