Photo Report: Visit to Mucci Farms in Kingsville

During the Canadian Greenhouse Conference Bus Tour, Mucci Farms welcomed us to take a look at 30 acres of tomato production in Kingsville, Ontario. Grower Herney Hernandez showed us the tomato crops at two adjacent greenhouses of 15 acres each, while he also gave us some insight into the labour management systems that they use.

Mucci Farms is currently one of the larger greenhouse operations in Southern Ontario. They grow their own produce in 180 acres of greenhouses, as well as marketing the greenhouse produce of more than 400 additional acres. We visited their most recently opened 30 acre facility in Kingsville, where they are currently expanding with another 30 acres of high tech greenhouses.

In the greenhouses we visited, tomatoes on the vine in the coarse segment are grown. Furthermore, Mucci grows and packs the complete range of greenhouse vegetables in a very modern packing facility, equipped with the most efficient technology and logistical solutions. Next to this, the growers are also innovating with new products, they are one of the few Canadian growers of strawberries under glass.
