Mucci Farms' Nick Williamson Discusses New Facility, Tomato Offerings, and More
- by Kayla Webb
HURON, OH - Mucci Farms is setting up shop on U.S. soil after beginning production in its new Huron, Ohio-based facility. With lots in the works to bring the very best tomato offerings to American consumers, I caught up with Nick Williamson, Sales and Marketing, to learn more about Mucci Farms’ latest endeavors.
“We have been predominantly a Canadian-grown company for many years. This year marks our U.S.A. introduction into U.S.A.-grown greenhouse product,” Nick tells me. “Very new for us to be able to have American-grown product offered to our American customers. The first phase of many phases to come in the future.”
Nick explains that the new facility is in business 365 days a year and has a lit culture in all of its greenhouses in order to maintain the perfect environment for growing tomatoes year-round.
“We’re going to be doing tomatoes, tomato on the vine, and specialty tomatoes,” Nick says. “One of the tomatoes specifically is our Cherto tomato. It’s a specific cherry tomato on the vine, which is bite-size and incredible.”
