Village Farms uses reusable coconut fiber, not soil, to support the plants in the hydroponic solution. With hydroponics there is no soil erosion or loss of precious soil nutrients. We use less land to grow more, 20-30 times more per acre compared to growing outdoors. A fifty acre greenhouse can produce the same amount as a 1500 acre farm. We use 70% less land to grow the same amount of tomatoes grown outdoors.
Johnson’s Backyard Garden literally got its start in a small urban backyard. In 2004, we completely transformed our backyard in the Holly Street neighborhood in East Austin into a working garden and started selling our produce at the Austin Farmers Market.
For over 100 years, family-owned and operated Barrett Potato Farms has been growing and shipping fresh, seasonal potatoes throughout the United States and Canada. From our first crop of potatoes in Idaho in 1910 to our farms across the Texas panhandle today, our potatoes continue to be high quality, great tasting and fresh all summer long.
It all begins in our groves. That’s where abundant sunshine and rich soil work together to grow the finestcitrus – citrus that’s sweet, juicy, healthy and beautiful.
These groves – over 50,000 acres in all – are located where conditions are ideal for cultivating citrus: California’s San Joaquin Valley and Ventura County, South Texas and Mexico.
But growing the best fruit is only the beginning. Because we’re the largest vertically integrated citrus company in the world, we can provide you quality citrus all year long, from month to month and season to season.
The journey of J&B Farms and Jack’s Produce is a real success story. In 2001, David Jones started J&B Farms, a fresh market snap green beans and cabbage business. Product was sold fresh from the truck, with no packing shed. Longtime friends Jones and Joe Koch (who has 25 years of produce experience) partnered in 2004 when an opportunity arose to purchase part of Jack’s Produce. Jones bought a share of the company along with his uncle. J&B Farms began operating as the growing/farming arm of the sister companies, and Jack’s Produce runs the packing, cooling and shipping from its Pearsall, Texas facility.
