Onions, Innovation and Chewing Gum
This episode of RANCHCAST with LEM LEWIS, I interview third generation general manager, Shay Myers, where we discuss the innovative practices implemented by family run Froerer Farms and its Owhyee brand of onions. A third generation produce business based in Nyssa, Oregon, Froerer Farms actively involves several generations from eight different core families related by blood or marriage. Froerer Farms is a model of a well-run, vertically integrated, produce grower and packer.
Over the years, the operation has worked hard to remove as many of the profit sucking middlemen as possible from the chain of custody of its farm grown onions, asparagus, mint, yams, and other crops.
Among other lessons that Shay offers, is a clear understanding of what it takes to breathe fresh life into a long established business.
