"A new model for local produce distribution."
Blue Ridge Produce in the Virginia Piedmont area aggregates fresh fruit and vegetables grown locally, state-wide and regionally and markets them to wholesale buyers in Washington, DC and throughout the region. We provide growers key services: post-harvest handling training and monitoring, farm pick-up, packing, cooling, marketing and distribution. Blue Ridge Produce strives to build a value-based relationship with growers of all sizes which will help provide the support needed to scale up produce grown in our region. We will strive to source from organic, local and low-spray producers specifically and will offer support toward GAP training in the future. Blue Ridge Produce will expand into growing tomatoes and lettuce year-round in greenhouses at the Willow Run Facility in Elkwood, Virginia.
