Meet the Family


Since 1922, Wish Farms has been growing the berries you love to eat.
As a 4th generation family business, we are proud
to be a leader in our industry and carry on the family legacy.

“Our family business started with humble beginnings on the streets of New York City, selling produce from a pushcart.
Today, I am proud to work alongside my son and daughter and their spouses.” – Gary Wishnatzki, 3rd generation owner.


Gary started working in the business in 1974. His wife, Therese works with the foundation’s charitable efforts and wrote the book, Misty the Garden Pixie

James and Elizabeth Peterson started working for Wish Farms in 2011. Elizabeth took a leave of absence in 2013 to raise the fifth generation, Will and Joey. James currently serves as the Vice President of Fresh Sales. 

In 2017, Nick Wishnatzki and husband Stephen Cramer officially joined the business in marketing and accounting, respectively.
