As a fourth generation family farming company we are committed to continually improving the health of our land, vibrancy of our communities and quality of our products. We operate in a diverse mix of growing regions and understand how to maintain a balance with nature while providing a consistent supply of fresh, healthy vegetables to consumers around the globe.
Foxy owners, the Nunes family, work in all aspects of the business including sales, growing, harvesting, cooling and shipping, and all employees have access to the Nunes Family on a daily basis.
In 2005 we started the process of transitioning our land into organic production. This year, over 25 percent of our total crop output will be grown organically with more land transitioning every year!
