Deardorff Family Farms Expanding Organic Production Base and Sales Team
OXNARD, CA – Deardorff Family Farms is expanding both its organic production base as well as its sales team.
The company will have increased production through Fall and Winter from Ventura County, Imperial Valley and Mexico, according to a press release. This increase of production will help Deardorff meet increased demand for year-round vegetable items.
“Our focus for the past two years was on building programs that ensure Deardorff Organics has the highest quality organic vegetables every day. With that now in place, we are scaling our programs to meet our customer’s demand for additional supplies of Deardorff Organics,” said Luke Patruno, Organic Sales Manager.
In line with this organic expansion, Deardorff has hired Tyler Clear to work in its organic sales team.
Tom Deardorff, II, President of Deardorff Family Farms says, “Timing is everything – our organic department is taking off at the same time we found a passionate, young and extremely knowledgeable salesperson in Tyler to join our staff. We are now able to match our increased supply of high quality organic vegetables with superior customer service and sales support. Needless to say, we are very excited about the upcoming season.”
Tyler is a graduate from Cal-Poly San Luis Obispo. He has worked with Albert’s Organics and most recently with Organically Grown Company in Portland, Oregon. He has also worked with PMA, been a part of the Foundation for Industry Talent Emerging Leaders program in 2013 and is currently serving on the Fresh Summit Committee.
Deardorff Family Farms launched its Deardorff Organics line in 2006 and has seen continuous year over year sales growth.
