georgia-3Hapco Farms, based in Riverhead, NY, is expanding its broccoli acreage into Georgia. This new crop will begin shipping at the end of October under the Fresh from the Start brand.

"Our broccoli season now seamlessly transitions from Maine, New York, Florida and Georgia, providing our East Coast customers continuous supply of Fresh from the Start broccoli," said Eric Scannelli, senior vice president of Hapco Farms.

Like its other grower programs, Hapco Farms manages the entire process from seed through harvesting, packing, shipping and sales to ensure quality product to their customers.

"With this expanded acreage, we are happy to continue our broccoli program way into the spring," Scannelli added.
