Bushel Boy founder Jay Johnson began growing red, ripe tomatoes in Owatonna, Minnesota in 1990. He started the company out of a simple desire for fresh, vine-ripened tomatoes year-round. Yes, even in the middle of January.
“There’s real satisfaction in eating locally-grown vegetables rather than food that has been shipped from Mexico or Canada,” says Johnson. “Just think about eating a tomato right off the vine, compared to one that was picked green, crated up and shipped thousands of miles – there’s a big difference.”
Our expert team has created the perfect growing environment, combining the latest in greenhouse design and technology with the hands-on TLC it takes to produce the sweetest, juiciest tomatoes. Bushel Boy tomatoes are always picked ripe on the vine, carefully packed and trucked directly to stores for maximum freshness and flavor. We hope you enjoy the fruit of our labor as much as we do.
