Our Farm is Our Family
There isn’t a day that goes by that we don’t give thanks for the good fortune of being successful year-after-year doing what we truly love—growing premium onions. Just onions. Lots and lots of them.

The farm David envisioned years ago, with the first seed he planted, has blossomed and grown significantly with the help and support of his family, friends and loyal team. Peri & Sons’ is a true family farm, which is defined as a farm solely owned, operated and sustained by a family with a long heritage of farming.

Our deep, personal commitment sets us apart from farms that operate as collectives, trusts, corporations or other institutionalized entities. For us, farming is personal and we have a passionate, hands-on approach to every aspect of growing and marketing the white, yellow, red and sweet onion varieties we are known for.
