    Our First Step

    Initially we grew Rutabagas for the North American market.

    Rutabaga is a cross between a cabbage and a turnip. Also called a Swedish Turnip or a "Swede", it is very high in iron, and easy to prepare.

    Expansion and Growth

    Significant Growth in Huron County

    Throughout the early 60's, an aggressive growth plan allowed us to acquire 2,800 acres of prime agricultural farm land in Huron County and expand our product offering to our current menu today.

Want to get creative with produce?

Elf makes a snowman
Elf doesn’t need snow to make a snowman! A few veggies will do just fine. Here’s what you’ll need to help your Elf make a veggie snowman: three small rutabagas, the top of a bell pepper, two cranberries, the end of a carrot or a baby carrot, and two celery sticks.

Begin by assembling the body. Use skewers to stack and hold the turnips in place. Attach the eyes, nose, and arms with skewers or toothpicks. Set the bell pepper hat on top. Sprinkle coconut flakes around the base of the snowman to create “snow.”
