How it began
Chuck Berry’s song, “It was a teenage wedding, and the old folks wished them well….” described Bill and Angell in 1981. They loaded their B-210 and floored it to Chelan to begin a lifetime farming career. After four lean years on the farm Bill grew up on, the couple and their new baby, Shyla, cut free and searched for other opportunities. Eventually, they strike gold in leasing area orchards and have another baby, Natalie. With a passion for farming and organics, they incorporated Diamondback Acres, Inc. in 1992 and became certified organic in 1995.
The family and farm
Their family farm story is of persistence and preservation. Outside family members jump in when needed to assist Bill and Angell with the busy lifestyle of raising a family and building a start-up farming business. Bill and Angell teach their daughters the art of wearing many hats while working in the orchards to do a job well done. Angell’s agrarian enthusiasm, combined with Bill’s eternal optimism, fuels the couple’s farming progress. As the years tick by, the experiences along the way teach the young family the values that keep the family and the business together: compassion and empathy for people and workers, family, honesty, a love of the land and nature, self-reliance, and at the end of the day, letting Jesus take the wheel with so many unknowns and things out of their control.
Stewards of the land and business
Now the ranch is designated a Women-Owned Business since the Clark family is three-quarters women. They continue their commitment to clean, healthy farming practices to provide organic fresh fruit from their ranch to your door while protecting the environment they love. With the majestic mountains surrounding the farm and pristine Lake Chelan in the foreground, they believe in the extra efforts to keep the waters clean through their Salmon-Safe certification. As their business reaches beyond its majestic landscape, they continue their work to preserve our planet through guilt-free and sustainable packaging. They believe this united effort will benefit consumers, workers, water, and the land.
