He was integral in supervising production facility operations and leading the charge in food safety. After leaving for a few years to assume a new role in the same category, he returned to take the role of the Production Manager.

Blake Dasher, Chief Executive Officer, G&R Farms“His passion for the onion industry, as well as his experience in and knack for relationship building, will be integral as we continue to find new ways to partner with retailers outside of our annual programs," shared Blake Dasher, Chief Executive Officer of G&R Farms. “Kelby’s exposure to both fresh and storage onions will be invaluable as he takes on a more strategic role.”

Over the past year, he has led the production team for all retail packing with responsibilities including staff training, warehouse oversight, and examining fresh product to ensure it is up to company, retailer, and consumer standards.

Steven Shuman, Vice President of Sales, G&R Farms“I’m excited to promote Kelby to sales manager and have him serve in this new position for G&R Farms,” commented Steven Shuman, Vice President of Sales. “His personality and vast knowledge on the industry will bring a new set of skills that will strengthen our team, and ultimately help us carry out our mission to lead with honesty and integrity.”
