About Valley Harvest Products
Ron Harris did not expect to be a spice man, but a neighbor who owned a spice company kept prodding him to give it a chance. He worked for 20 years at this spice company, which became known as Pacific Harvest. In August 2006, after purchasing the company from the owners, he reinvented it as Valley Harvest Products. Ron takes pride in sourcing the most consistent and high quality spices he can. While organic spices represent a small part of his business, Ron has been committed to finding the best products he can for Tilth.
