Dole Food Company Celebrates National Farmer's Day With New Video Series; Bil Goldfield Details



CHARLOTTE, NC - It takes the hard work of many to build a reputation as prestigious as that of Dole Food Company’s. Spotlighting the hundreds of family farmers that make up its global network, the produce supplier is celebrating National Farmer’s Day with an insightful new video series.

Bil Goldfield, Director of Corporate Communications, Dole Food Company“Family farmers are at the heart of Dole,” said Bil Goldfield, Director of Corporate Communications. “Despite the perception of Dole as a corporate farming organization, in addition to our owned agriculture production, we are made up of a network of many independent growers. Working with Dole enables these small farmers to gain access and opportunity to a competitive market that they may not have on their own. Working together allows us to feed a hungry world and support a healthy lifestyle around the world.”

Dole has been working with family farmers in the United States for more than 50 years as part of a larger farming legacy that dates back to the early 1900s, a press release explained. Dole currently works with family farmers in nine states across the United States to grow more than 15 different vegetable varieties.

“In the U.S., alone, we grow and source fresh vegetables on 42,815 acres of U.S. farmland, making us one of largest single-brand growers in the country,” Bil noted. “Of this amount, 27,717 acres, almost two-thirds, are owned by family farmers.”

The first two videos in the series debuted on Dole’s LinkedIn page today, October 12, with additional videos celebrating Dole’s U.S. and global farmer partners to come. The first two videos spotlight domestic vegetable farmers Jesus Tovar of T&P Farms in Somerton, Arizona, and Zach Barnes of Dole Fresh Vegetables in Soledad, California.
