The warehouses smell of Christmas evergreens almost 12 months of the year, keeping the team constantly aware of the next Christmas season and the planning needed to make it a success. Christmas is big in our Belfair, Washington location, but week to week brush is king and is brought to the facility 52 weeks a year.
Our largest distribution center is surrounded by forests of Douglas Fir and plentiful Salal in the understory. Native and wild in the Pacific Northwest, we harvest Salal and Huckleberry, and Beargrass year-round, along with other forest products such as Sphagnum Moss, Flat Fern, Rush and Willow. Our brush is shipped globally and all starts in the backyard of the Pacific Northwest wild. The only break for Salal and Huck comes during the soft season, May through Mid-July, when Salal, Huck and other forest products cannot be harvested due to new growth that will become the following seasons harvest. During this soft season we are able to harvest and store Salal to continually supply our customers, as our warehouses in Belfair house over 100,000 square feet of refrigeration.
Also at home in Belfair, is our corporate team, so day-to-day operations and leadership are hands-on in streamlining processes from picking to packing to shipping.
