Interview with Grimmway Farms - The Largest Carrot Grower in the World!


Where is the company located?

Headquartered in Bakersfield, California


How did the company get started?

Grimmway Farms traces its roots to a roadside produce stand opened by Rod and Bob Grimm in Anaheim, CA. The Grimm brothers incorporated their business in 1969 and moved the company to Kern County in 1981 to take advantage of the region’s fertile, year-round growing conditions. In 1990, they combined their knowledge of farming, engineering and consumer trends to market cut and peeled baby carrots. They grew potatoes as a rotation crop which they sold to King Pak Potato Co. before acquiring the company in 2000. The baby carrot product catapulted Grimmway’s growth and enabled the successful acquisition of several other regional growing operations, including Cal-Organic Farms in 2001. A pioneer organic farming company, Cal-Organic had been growing organic fruits and vegetables since 1984, including several varieties of organic potatoes. Today Grimmway leads the industry as the world’s largest producer of carrots and the nation’s largest producer of organic vegetables.
