Norman Bradford

September 14, 1924 - April 1, 2010 


Beginning in the 1940's Norman Bradford dedicated much of his working life to the development of new fruit and nut varieties on the same ranch in Le Grand, California. He spent the first four decades with the renowned Fred Anderson, and in 1981 Fred sold the breeding business to Norman and his son, Glen. For 27 years the father-son partnership, Bradford Farms, continued the Anderson program as one of the oldest private breeding programs in California. In 2008 Norman officially retired from the plant breeding business.  On April 1, 2010, Norman peacefully passed away at home with Audrey, his wife of 63 years, holding his hand.  Norman's love for God, his family, his country and farming were always present in his life here on earth. Today the plant breeding business continues as B Q GENETICS, with Glen being joined by his son-in-law, Jon Quisenberry. 



Bradford Farms does not produce or sell any commercial or ornamental fruit trees of any kind. We kindly regret that we cannot arrange or direct any tree sales for the backyard/homeowners/U-pick type plantings.
