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.
The University’s commitment to sustainability in dining is helping to reduce the institution’s carbon footprint while ensuring BGSU remains among the nation’s most environmentally responsible colleges.
