From there, the farm has been operated by 8 different generations of Mason farmers. Continue below to learn how each generation of farmers impacted the history of Mason Farms!

Today, Mason Farms approaches 1,000 acres which include the original land of our ancestors. We grow about 25 different types of crops spanning over 150 different varieties. Doug Mason is the current owner of the farm and his father and children work alongside him.

Flavor is our main priority, so we only choose varieties with the best flavor. Mason Farms is continually growing and looking for innovations that will start the future of farming.
