Farming is a delicate process that is weather dependent, requires sophisticated equipment, and perfect timing. Our farmers prepare each field using GPS guided instruments to precisely space every plant evenly within each row, ensuring optimal growing conditions.
The length of the growing season depends on the plant variety and variables of the specific region. Cabbage takes approximately 88-90 days to mature and is harvested every day from July through November in Ohio and January through June in Florida. Cabbage is able to tolerate the fluctuating weather patterns, making it easily adaptable to extreme heat in the summertime and able to maintain its homeostatic qualities after an early freeze.
Our line-ready product is cored, pre-cooled, and shipped within hours of harvest which ensures quality freshness for a longer period of time. We have become one of the only growers in the nation to perfect this process that maximizes freshness, reduces waste, and has changed the culture of vegetable processing in agribusiness.
Just like our line-ready cored cabbage, we also grow whole head cabbage that is cooled through a vacuum tube and shipped to suppliers. The vacuum tube is a practical way to pre-cool vegetables to attain optimum shelf-life due to its speed and efficiency.
