On Today's Episode: Nate sits down with Paul Rasch, owner and “Chief Apple Officer” of Wilson’s Apple Orchard and Farm on the outskirts of Iowa City. The two discuss his experience being born into an apple-growing family, what he learned starting the first commercial apple juice company in China, and why Iowa was the place he wanted to put down tree roots when he returned to America.
Paul also shares his thoughts on the ins and outs of their negotiations to purchase Wilson’s Apple Orchard, why sustainability is key to their future success, and Paul shares some insight into the future of their blossoming company.
