In 1948, Al and Ann Bigej proudly opened Al’s Fruit Stand. Housed in an unused chicken coop along Hwy 99E in Woodburn, Al began selling fruit and produce to local residents and tourists who traveled along the highway.

Al’s Garden & Home believes in supporting our local communities. We take pride in being a good neighbor and doing our best to respond to the needs of those around us. Al’s demonstrates this support by making donations every year to local schools, churches, community gardens and many other non-profit organizations that surround our three store locations.
