Grimmway Farms (California): The largest grower, producer, and shipper of carrots in the United States

23-01-2021

(Uskings.us) Grimmway Farms is the largest grower, producer, and shipper of carrots in the United States. It is headquartered in Bakersfield, California, and has been family owned and operated for more than 40 years. The company has been recognized for popularizing the baby carrot.

 

 

Grimmway Farms was established in the mid-1960s when brothers Rodney Grimm and Robert Grimm started farming five acres of sweet corn on their grandfather's chicken farm in Anaheim, California. Through the years, they added other crops, which they sold alongside the corn in small family-run roadside produce stands.

 

 

In the early 1980s, after the concept of baby carrots was successfully test-marketed by another company in Los Angeles, the Grimm brothers relocated to Kern County and began processing baby carrots. By 2002, the company was able to process millions of pounds of baby carrots a day.

 

 

Grimmway Farms handles 10 million pounds of carrots a day and grows over 40,000 acres of carrots. Other Grimmway products include carrot juice concentrate and carrot juice-based products used in soup bases, vegetable blends, condiment formulation, and flavor additives. Cal-Organic Farms, Grimmway Farms’ organic division, produces sixty-five year-round crops including carrots, leeks, broccoli, and lettuce. Organic products are certified through CCOF, a recognized third-party approved by the USDA.

 

 

Today, Grimmway Farms produces more than 135 seasonal and year-round products distributed worldwide. The company is proud to grow 100% of it’s produce in the USA.
