Greg Moser - Moser Orchards

Greg Moser truly does it all. Over the last 30 years he has successfully juggled many positions including: grower, marketer, CEO, father, and even a basketball coach. Now, Greg focuses the majority of his efforts on serving as the General Manager of Gold Digger Apples, Inc. in Oroville, Washington. Gold Digger currently owns over 700 acres of apples, pears, and cherries, so this is more than a full time job. It is rare that he has a weekend off.
Though Greg is fully immersed in the lifestyle now, he didn’t always know his life would take him back to his hometown of Oroville, WA. Greg earned a degree from Western Washington University in business administration. After working for an insurance agency in Spokane, Greg and his wife Diane planned to move to Leavenworth, WA and start a life there. On their way to Leavenworth, however, something happened. “I ended up taking a right on 97 and came here, back to Oroville,” Greg said with a laugh.
From there, Greg started the next chapter of his life when he inherited his father-in-law’s orchards and started a family of his own. For the first 18 years, Greg also worked as the marketing director for Gold Digger. Then, for the last 12 years, he has been the General Manager.
Greg now has four grown children, two boys and two girls. Both of the son’s, Gerad and Corbin, are going to college to earn degrees in Agriculture and hopefully come back and take over the orchards one day.
