Ecke Ranch to Build New Farm in GuatemalaSource: Ecke Ranch

Ecke Ranch initiated a major expansion to its farms in Guatemala in December 2010. Due to the success and expansion of products and the closer relationships with customers, Ecke Ranch is in need of additional offshore capacity and is building a new farm to support this demand.

“Farm 3 adds new capacity to satisfy demand in several key crop areas,” said Steve Rinehart, chief operating officer. The initial phase will cover approximately 250,000 square feet. The new farm is adjacent to Farm 1, and allows for excellent efficiencies of scale and management functions. Steve explained, “We will have site growers on the new farm, but the overall management can be done from Farm 1, which capitalizes on the long and successful history of producing high-quality products.”

Ecke Guatemala is in its 14th year of operation, and has won numerous awards for quality, productivity and sound management practices.

Paul Ecke III, owner and CEO, is excited to be back in expansion mode and is confident that this space will be put to good use in the summer 2011 shipping season.
