Employee Owned Family Farm

About Tanimura & Antle

Founded in 1982, Tanimura & Antle is an employee-owned family farming business with a four generation legacy and a passionate commitment to growing premium quality produce. Built on a partnership between two families, with a shared commitment to always value employees as its greatest asset, the founding families now share ownership with all employees — from farming and harvest crews to management — through an Employee Stock Ownership Plan (ESOP). As one of the largest independent vegetable growers in the United States, Tanimura & Antle farms more than 36,000 acres of rich, fertile farmland and ships a full line of premium fresh conventional and organic produce products throughout North America, Europe and Asia. 

At Tanimura & Antle we proudly dedicate ourselves to meet all challenges and opportunities to continue as the industry leader in quality, innovation and grower, customer and employee relations. That is our philosophy.
