Good Farming
With deep roots in farming that took hold over a hundred years ago, third-generation farmer, David Peri, owner of Peri & Sons Farms, and his family still take a heart-felt, hands-on approach to every aspect of growing and selling beautiful onions.

In 1979 at the age of 20, David began farming 100-acres as Peri & Sons Farms. Over the next 35 years he built a reputation around responsibly growing beautiful, fresh premium and organic onions with honesty and integrity.

Today our family farms hundreds of acres of onions each year; selling over 350 million pounds of white, red, yellow and sweet onions throughout the U.S. and across the globe. We understand that growing fresh produce comes with enormous social responsibility and we take that very seriously -- from the very top of the company on down.

Our farm strictly follows non-GMO practices and our years of dedication to food safety has earned us the GFSI/GlobalGAP certification -- a level of certification not many farms are able to achieve.

Peri & Sons Farms is dedicated to creating a healthy farming business that meets the needs of the present without compromising the future because we are committed to protecting the environment, the health and safety of our employees, our customers and the community as a whole.
