Consalo Family Farms Continues New Jersey Blueberry Expansion
VINELAND, NJ - In order to meet retail customer demands, Consalo Family Farms continues to expand its footprint in the New Jersey growing region with the purchase of additional acreage.
“As one of the largest family-owned blueberry operations on the East Coast, we feel our main advantage is that we grow, pack, and market our own fruit,” said Skip Consalo, President of Consalo Family Farms. “This additional acreage will expand our growing and packing capabilities from 8 million to 9.5 million pounds during the New Jersey blueberry deal.”
Consalo Family Farms has acreage in New Jersey, North Carolina, and Mexico. This season the operation plans to harvest 35 million pounds of blueberries across all production areas.
Founded in 1927 and headquartered in Vineland, New Jersey, Consalo Family Farms’ operations now involve both third and fourth generation family members. The company is a year-round, global grower of vegetables and blueberries.
The company’s advanced research and development techniques at field level have improved blueberry sizing and flavor, enabling Consalo Family Farms to offer consumers the freshest varieties available to enhance their eating experience.
“We have always been and continue to be passionate about produce and are proud to be based on the traditions of trust, customer service, and dedication to excellence in farming,” said Skip. “Our latest farming expansion continues to improve our vertical integration strategy to drive costs out of the supply chain, maintain the green initiative and improve freshness for our valued customers.
