The multi-generatioinal family business started with the marriage of Dan Graiff and Dorris Bononcini, each from local farming families. Dan Graiff Farms, LLC. was established in 1980. Premium greens and herbs were the chosen crops.
In 1994 With the loss of their father, Dan’s two sons, and their mother Dorris, joined together to continue the family farm. The farm was more than just business, it was about family and expansion and diversification were the means for the continued success of Dan Graiff Farms.
AND 4 GENERATIONS OF FARMING
In 2001 the expansion and diversification plan was finalized, growers were contracted first in Florida (2006) then California, Arizona, and Texas (2009) for a year around supply of product. During this time, the processing line expanded from a couple of salad spinners to a state of the art 33,000 sqft. industrial processing and packaging facility of Premium Greens and Herbs.
