Mastronardi Produce is expanding the Backyard Farms brand with the introduction of a high-tech greenhouse in New York, which according to the company is the largest-ever single build in North America.
“This expansion allows us to meet the incredible loyal consumer and retailer demand for this brand," says Paul Mastronardi, President and CEO, and the fourth-generation family member to lead Mastronardi Produce. “It also ensures that all Northeasterners can enjoy what New Englanders have come to expect—fresh-from-the-vine Backyard Farms tomatoes delivered within hours.”
The 71.6-acre glass greenhouse is Phase I of the expansion in locally grown Backyard Farms tomatoes.
The new greenhouse more than doubles Backyard Farms’ greenhouse growing acreage and increases Mastronardi Produce’s internal greenhouse network to seven locations across the United States. In total, Mastronardi produces and delivers produce to retailers from more than 4,000 productive acres of growing capacity.
