Imperial's Garden is a family owned and operated produce company located in Wapato, Washington since 1985.
The Imperial’s began their farming journey in the Philippines growing rice and tobacco. In 1983, Mamerto and Antipolo Imperial immigrated to Wapato from Sta. Maria, Ilocos Sur with four of their children, Melchor, Marcelo, Manuel, and Virginia. They began working on relatives' farms before starting their own farming business in 1985 with 40 acres of land. In 1990, Marlo, the oldest son, joined the family business. After the passing of Mamerto and Antipolo, the siblings knew the importance of advancing the business to continue their parents' legacy.
Imperial’s Garden is located at 4817 Lateral A. Rd. Wapato, WA and the family farms around 1000 acres. They grow a large variety of produce, from asparagus in the early spring, corn in July, and squash/pumpkins in the fall, for the community and wholesale buyers.
