Located in Winter Haven, Florida, Noble Citrus has been family owned and operated since 1927! Their family’s great grandfather began the legacy by growing Florida Tangerines, as he believed them to be the noblest of all the citrus–eventually leading to the name of their farm. With family at the heart of their organization, Noble Farms strives to ensure the quality and taste of the citrus you bring home from their 4,400-acre farm is unmatched. In addition to growing premium Florida tangerines, oranges and pummelos, the fourth-generation farmers have implemented sustainable farming practices to ensure eco-conscious processes.
Astin Strawberry Exchange, LLC.
Astin Farms has been bringing Florida fresh, juicy berries since 1923 and was established by Sam Astin Sr. The family’s original crops began with corn, pole beans and only a few rows of strawberries until they realized their passion and potential for these mighty red fruits. Years later in 1982, Sam’s great-grandson began managing the farm and decided to establish the Astin Strawberry Exchange in 2001 to focus solely on growing high-quality strawberries. Astin Farms now represents more than 1,200-acres of vibrant strawberry fields bringing in over 40 million pounds of fruit each season. Astin Farms is proud to operate its state-of-the-art facility while following non-GMO and sustainable farming practices.
