About Us

Our Story

Founded in 1956, we understand that our longstanding farming relationships are core to what we do. We believe in quality, performance and that a love for what we do together is what makes us an industry leader. We are proud that our founding principles still drive us every day: integrity, quality and food safety, service, a commitment to protecting our environment for future generations to enjoy.

At Branch we understand that growing goes beyond just planting a seed – it is the entire farm to table promise.

Longtime Grower, Joe Thompson


We pride ourselves in being good stewards of the land. Some of the ways we are working to protect and conserve the Earth are through our participation in the Everglades Restoration initiative. Our farms incorporate advanced farming methods that reduce nutrients leaving the soil and minimizing the application of fertilizer through technology.

We are continually looking for innovative ways to grow our crops sustainably, keeping the Earth in mind – always.

Food Safety

Food safety is our top priority. Our food safety team ensures that our best practices are embedded into our culture. Our crews are trained on the importance of proper operating procedures, food safety and food security. We conduct daily and hourly inspection to ensure that policies are always carried out and work as effectively as possible. All our farms, processing facilities, storage facilities and shipping points are third party audited to verify and validate our practices.
