Happy New Year

After a wild ride through the fall of 2021, we are glad to be entering the new year as one of your suppliers. We wish you the very best and look forward to serving you this spring. We really are very grateful for the many ways we were able to work together with our grower base, the transportation industry, and our customers this past year. A hearty thank you for your support and patience!

A Look Ahead - Many New Genetics

Over the past number of years we have been ramping up our efforts to broaden and deepen our proprietary line up. As you are probably aware, bringing new varieties to market is an extensive process - identifying needs, searching for correct genetics, an abundance of research and evaluation, licensing agreements, breeding efforts, and more. It is neither a short, nor simple, nor easy process. That said, we want to start the year with a bit of a teaser into the future. We hope the list below will whet your appetite, and encourage you to continue to grow your business with us. Feel free to contact us with any questions or specific interest on anything you see.
