Oneonta Trading Corporation Becomes the First Exporter of Washington Apples

In 1934, enthusiastic by the burgeoning worldwide demand for fresh produce, Paul Thomas and his family formed Oneonta Trading Corporation in Wenatchee, and became the FIRST EXPORTER of Washington apples. Through strategic expansion and acquisitions beginning in the early fifties, Oneonta became an award-winning leader in Washington’s growing, packing and shipping industries. As the culmination of a 80 plus year reputation for offering exceptional quality, service and innovation, Oneonta is thrilled to present Starr Ranch Growers, Diamond Starr Growers and Starr Ranch Organics.
