PennRose Farms, a grower, shipper and supply chain expert in the complex category of mixed vegetables, cabbage, Brussels sprouts and more, has entered grower partnerships with Moore Farms in Manor, Georgia, and Patterson Farm in China Grove, North Carolina.
“Our spring, summer and fall vegetable lineups bring substantially greater value for our customers with the addition of these growers who share our vision of quality, safety, sustainability and service. As a grower-owned company, we will continue investing in innovative and long-term supply chains,” says Jason Wyatt, director of sales and business development at PennRose Farms.
Moore Farms produces bell pepper, cucumber, summer squash, specialty pepper, cabbage and eggplant.
“Our partnership recognizes the hard work, dedication, heart and character of Tim and Barbara Moore and their entire family. We are excited to work alongside them and match their efforts forward in the supply chain,” according to Chuck Ciruli, managing partner of PennRose Farms.
“We share the vision of a grower-owned supply chain that aligns product with the right customer,” said Tim Moore. “By optimizing every facet of the supply chain, we simultaneously maximize the farm-gate value of the crop while ensuring buyers an exceptional value.”
Shipments began this spring.
Patterson Farm began its season in June, with shipments of bell pepper, specialty pepper and cucumber continuing through October.
“Doug and Randall Patterson and their respective families have a unique product mix and distinctive distribution capability,” Ciruli said. “We look forward to working together to maximize the value of their efforts for all stakeholders in our supply chain.”
Ciruli said Patterson Farm will play a key role in the PennRose’s expansion of year-round distribution as a local producer with retail and foodservice customers.
