Natural Pollination With Bees

Natural Pollination With Bees

Bees are a Tomato Grower's best friend.

Unlike Cucumbers and Peppers, Tomatoes must be pollinated in order to grow to full size. In the early days, growers would use a handheld tool to pollinate their Tomato crops. Since then, our growers have employed bees to help them with pollination.

Donations to Prairie Gleaners Reduce Food Waste

We've been a proud partner of Prairie Gleaners for nearly ten years. Prairie Gleaners collects misshapen or discoloured produce that doesn't meet the standards set by regulators for grocery store shelves. Since our partnership began, we've donated over 400 tons of Bell Peppers that wouldn't otherwise have had a home. Once the Prairie Gleaners receive the produce, they prepare and dehydrate it so it can be distributed to those in need around the world.
