Our Farms

Did you know that nearly 33% of the celery consumed in the U.S. is produced by the Duda Farm Fresh Foods family of growers? With thousands of acres cultivated on U.S. family farms, our local growers enable us to harvest, process and package a wide range of fresh fruits and vegetables year-round. We believe we're growing more than fresh produce; we're growing a healthy future for your family.

Growing for Future Generations icon

Growing for Future Generations

With 184 years of celery research and development, our promise to responsibly harvest the freshest quality produce while reducing our environmental footprint continues today, just as our founders envisioned.

Land Utilization icon

Land Utilization

By investing in Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) technology, we've constructed exact calculations of field sizes and locations to optimize vegetable growth. We only use non-GMO plantlets that thrive in high plant populations to reduce our land use and increase the quality of our crops.

Water Conservation icon

Water Conservation

We are dedicated to being environmental responsibility in our water conservation efforts on our farms and in our processing facilities. In fact, we've reduced our water consumption by 30% through expanding the use of drip irrigation nationwide.

Agricultural Chemical Use icon

Agricultural Chemical Use

As early adopters of integrated pest management practices, we've witnessed the benefits of insects to naturally reduce plant pests. Since the 1950s, we have used professional, licensed "scouts" and "pest control advisors" to guide our farmers with agricultural best practices.

Laser Leveling icon

Laser Leveling

Laser leveling has had a positive effect with respect to water distribution and water conservation, minimizing environmental impacts from run-off and poor drainage, and has increased the uniformity and yields of our crops.

Seed Innovation

For decades, our scientists have been innovating proprietary celery seed varieties using natural methods to deliver a better flavor and a higher quality product.

Planting & Growing

From the time a fresh crop of celery seed is planted until it arrives on the shelves at the store, it has been growing in a perfectly manicured field for approximately 6 months.

Harvesting

When the celery is at the peak of freshness, the crop is harvested. Our crew hand-picks the stalks individually and prepares them to be packed and shipped.

Cooling

After being hand-picked in the field, the celery immediately makes its way to a state-of-the-art cooling facility where it is tagged with traceable information and is stored before being loaded on a truck in route to your grocery store or the fresh-cut facility.

Once the celery stalks are cut, sorted, and carefully placed into packaging at our state-of-the-art processing facility, orders are filled and trucks are loaded with ready-to-eat celery!
