Bushel Boy has earned brand trust and loyalty through generations of strong leadership.
Inspired by his father’s career in the grocery business and his overall love of food Chuck’s roots in the food and agriculture industry run deep.

For Roberto Ramirez, Bushel Boy’s head grower agriculture is not just a passion – it’s second nature. He comes from a family of farmers, spending summers working on his grandfather’s vegetable farm. After college Roberto launched his career at the first high-tech greenhouse operation in Mexico. In the U.S. he gained over a decade of experience as a high-tech greenhouse grower. Roberto continues to extend and implement technological advancements, keeping Bushel Boy on the cutting edge of hydroponic growing.
We donate literally tons of tomatoes a year to help local food shelves fight hunger, shipping our less than perfect tomatoes to Second Harvest Heartland in the Twin Cities and Channel One in Rochester. We are proud to provide these organizations with fresh, healthy produce to help families in need get good nutrition.
