Fresh From Our Fields
We're in the field every day, assessing quality and maturity and selecting the right product for each customer. Whether export, domestic cartons or product for further processing, our customers get the freshest produce possible.
Export Broccoli is always in season. We offer a variety of cuts, packed in our label or yours, cut and cooled to your specs. We'll work with your field representative to ensure the product makes arrival, even after a long boat ride.
The Central Coast enjoys a long warm season, from March/April through Nov/Dec, perfect for growing iceberg. When winter hits you can find us in the desert, where warmer temps ensure that we have lettuce for the rest of the year.
CA LGMA Certified
We've been a certified member of the CA LGMA since its inception in 2007.
Many of our Growers are also our Owners. That means direct communication from growing, through harvest, sales, shipping and on to our customers.
Coding on cartons, bins and pallets offers one up and one back traceability for all our items.
