Grimmway Farms

The Grimm broth­ers began nur­tur­ing their fam­ily busi­ness in the fer­tile soil of Kern County more than 3 decades ago. Today, their roots run deep. Grimmway Farms has grown to become the largest grower, pro­ducer and ship­per of car­rots in the world; but the fam­ily still insists on walk­ing the fields, vis­it­ing the pro­cess­ing facil­i­ties and per­form­ing their own brand of qual­ity assur­ance — every sin­gle day. In 1968 when Rod and Bob Grimm set up their first road­side pro­duce stand, the broth­ers made a promise: always take care of the customer.

Decades later, that promise has never been bro­ken. Grimmway Farms’ ded­i­ca­tion to con­sis­tent qual­ity and depend­able ser­vice has made them the global leader in their industry.

Acknowl­edg­ing and respond­ing to the issues impor­tant to their cus­tomers is impor­tant to them. To address the grow­ing con­sumer demand for pesticide-​free fruits and veg­eta­bles, Grimmway Farms is con­tin­u­ously devel­op­ing new avenues of opportunity.

In 2001, they acquired Cal-​Organics, a pio­neer organic pro­duce com­pany pro­vid­ing more than 75 organic prod­uct offerings.
