Who We Are
Our story began in the Salinas Valley, affectionately called America’s Salad Bowl. It was here, where Bruce Taylor followed in the footsteps of his father and grandfather and became the third generation to work in the fresh produce business.
In 1995, when Bruce Taylor and several partners founded Taylor Farms, a new company was born, with a vision to become North America’s favorite maker of salads and healthy fresh foods.
We were founded with three key principles that still remain as our guiding philosophy in how we do business;
Do the right thing, take care of the customer, and take care of each other.
