Leading provider of orchard and vineyard supplies and solutions, and outsourced vineyard management services

Orchard & Vineyard Supply f.k.a. Wilson Orchard & Vineyard Supply (“OVS”) is a leading agricultural solutions provider offering trellis equipment and supplies, irrigation, chemicals and fertilizers to orchard and vineyard growers nationwide.  OVS also offers outsourced, turnkey vineyard management services in the Pacific Northwest through its RP division.  OVS was formed through Clearview’s initial acquisition of Wilson Orchard & Vineyard Supply (based in Yakima, WA) in partnership with management from a passive owner in 2016, and subsequent merger with Oregon Vineyard Supply, which had been an ESOP, in 2018.

In 2019, the combined companies were rebranded as Orchard & Vineyard Supply or OVS.  Management is pursuing an aggressive growth strategy including opening new locations as well as making add-on acquisitions to expand its market presence and add new capabilities.

The original transaction closed on December 21, 2016.  Clearview invested equity from Clearview Capital Fund III, L.P. Senior debt was provided by Huntington National Bank and BMO Harris Bank, and mezzanine debt was provided by PNC Erieview Capital.
