As the COVID-19 outbreak continues to develop, we have already taken measures to ensure the continued safety and availability of our produce – learn more about these measures below. Effective immediately, we are implementing further measures to help ensure the continued safety of our employees, colleagues, and products.
After careful consideration, the Bushel Boy team has made the decision to suspend all non-essential business travel until further notice.

We hope you understand the necessity for these measures, and we apologize for any inconvenience they may cause. We will continue to provide updates as more information becomes available, and as the situation continues to develop.
Thank you for your patience and understanding as we work to minimize the negative impacts of COVID-19 on our industries, communities, and families.
