So what is The Local Farmer’s Brand™?
The Intersection of Traceability and Sustainability
The idea to support other local farmers stemmed from the success we found in the value-added products we created from our own harvests at Seaside Farm. Sustainability among family farms is hard work, Seaside Grown helps other farmers by purchasing their produce that is too ripe for the consumer market at harvest. This beautiful, ripe produce would have otherwise been tossed back into the field to rot or in other words… wasted.
A symbiotic relationship between Seaside Grown and American farms was born, and this is why today, we are The Local Farmer’s Brand.™
MEET OUR FARMERS
Big Smile Peaches
For over 80 years, J.W. Yonce & Sons has been growing their commercial peach operation with family overseeing its success every step of the way. Generation after generation, the core values of producing consistent, premium peaches—a quality that will make you want to smile— has been at the forefront of their mission. Driving through the upstate is a gorgeous site when the blooms have reached peak pinkness. This and similar strong family values created a special bond between Seaside Grown and Big Smile Peaches and we are certainly proud to create our Field to Glass® with their beautiful, ripe peaches each summer.
Fort Pierce, FL
Natalie’s Orchid Island Juice Company was the dream of Marygrace Sexton. Wife of a 4th generation citrus farmer and mother to Natalie (the company’s namesake). Having all of the access desired to fresh fruit, but not to freshly squeezed juice unless she squeezed it herself, she created the brand in 1989, producing orange and grapefruit juices squeezed fresh weekly. After 30 years, the legacy continues to flourish into a global brand. This year, Seaside Grown launched a fresh Margarita Mix, utilizing the lemon, lime and tangerine juices made from Natalie’s.
