What is Eden Valley Growers?

Most of the members are fifth, sixth, & seventh generation farms and include Henry W. Agle & Sons, Ronald Draudt & Sons, Kenneth Henry & Sons, MCR Farm, Amos Zittel & Sons, Henry’s Gardens, W.D.

These farms and distribution facility are located approximately 20 miles south of Buffalo, in Eden, New York.  The “Co-op” provides cooling, marketing, and distribution of the produce grown. From May 1st to December 1st we ship over half a million cases throughout the Eastern United States and handle over 45 specialty vegetable and fruit varieties.  We are extending our season’s offering each year with plans to soon be a year round operation.​

What we Produce

Every season Eden Valley builds a bigger shopping basket. Our cooler inventory includes peas and strawberries in the spring; leafy lettuce all season long; beans, cauliflower, eggplant, tomatoes, summer squash, peaches and blueberries during the summer; kale, winter squash, brussel sprouts, apples, and pears throughout the fall. Some of our biggest volume crops are green sweet peppers, cabbage, corn, and cucumbers.  This year we are planning to provide our customers with several different varieties of potatoes, onions, and root crops too!

Our Growing Reputation...

Over 500,000 cartons of produce shipped each year, and that number keeps growing.

60% of shipments go to local grocery stores and supermarkets in the Buffalo, NY area.

40% of shipments go to the New York City area, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Michigan, Texas, Louisiana and Florida

The Western NY Food Hub is supported through a grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, Local Food Promotion Program, and provides qualified growers with immediate access to wholesale markets.

 

Eden Valley Growers was selected in 2014 to own/operate the Western New York Food Hub, and has opened the door to new produce growers interested in selling through wholesale market channels! Recognizing the increasing demand for locally grown food, and the considerable assets the cooperative has in terms of infrastructure, sales and marketing, they were poised to provide Western NY farmers with a viable market for their produce.
