Hirzel Canning Company & Farms was founded in 1923 by Carl R. Hirzel. Due to a change in labor classification in 1963, Hirzel Farms was incorporated into a separate entity.
Over the past 50 years, Hirzel Farms has diversified into an operation that is comprised of five unique, yet harmonious, areas of focus.
Organic and Non-GMO Crop Production
Conventional Production of Processing of Tomatoes and Cabbage
Organic and Non-GMO Grain Conditioning, Sorting, and Packaging
Research & Development and Community Outreach. Emphasizing sustainable and organic agricultural systems and practices.
There are sections in the field for photo opportunities but the cool temperatures pushed these guys to producing seed which is why they start to droop as their heads grow heavy. Photos aren’t the only reason to visit these guys! It’s pretty amazing to watch them through their lifecycle. Good teaching moment from planting seed to harvest! #organicsunflower#sunflower#organicfarm#organic#local
