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.
Our sunflowers are getting heavy!! Their petals are starting to look smaller and flimsy as the seed fills their faces. This is normal at this stage. Because they are certified organic, there are some unwanted neighbors growing along side (Giant ragweed for example) enjoying the chemical free location.
We have a surprise 🥳🎉
We will update you with an “encore” this afternoon 😎🌻😎
… they’re hard at work producing seed, causing the flower to droop because of the weight. We admire their beauty and appearance! We seem to forget the miracle that is taking place. They’re creating little seeds that will go on to feed people and animals… thank you sunflowers! You are beautiful and strong! 💪🏼💪🏼👏🏻👏🏻⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️⬇️guessing by the weekend you will see a difference. Still should@be a couple places for pictures
