Dan and Carol Vandell, who have each spent years working for food companies like Harry & David and Leprino Foods, are now offering fruit boxes for fundraising through their new company Quail Valley Farms.

The company will acquire oranges from California, Rio Star grapefruit from Texas, D’Anjou pears from the Rogue Valley and Fuji apples from Washington.

The company will use the SOS fruit-packing facility in Medford, where it eventually will have the capacity to handle 400,000 to 600,000 boxes annually.
