Proud to be part of the Pride, Bland Farms Empire-Sweet® onions will reach store shelves in the New York area and Northeastern US region in the coming days. The sweet onion grower is proud to be a member of the Pride of New York Program and is very exciting about enriching the lives of local neighbors and customers with this year’s crop.
Omar Cruz, Bland Farms’ Director of Farm Production, says the Cato-based New York sweet onion looks great, “I feel very good about the crop…the quality is there and that makes me very happy…the crop overall will make good yields.”
President and Owner, Delbert Bland, feels like the quality of this year’s crop should not only make Bland Farms and the local community proud, but the entire state of New York as well, where the interest in locally grown products is very high, “we are very proud to be involved with the Pride of New York program and hope that residents of the State of New York and those people purchasing our product in the Northeast will enjoy the high-quality sweet onions that their state and region is able to produce. There is a rich history to our farm and our Empire-Sweet’s® are a product of that history.”
