The company has partnered with farms in Georgia, Florida, and California in order to cultivate its premium selections. Gourmet Trading Company stated that its farms and crops in the Southeast were fortunate to escape the recent freeze that passed through the area.

Additionally this season, Gourmet Trading Company is especially excited to bring berries to market from its Delano, CA, farm.

“The berries we cultivate here are varieties that are extremely large and flavorful," continued Fiszman. "The farm has some of the earliest production in California, so we can meet the demand of our customers who are eager for blueberry season to start.”
