As we launch our new season, we wish to send our colleagues and producers in the areas hard-hit by storms and earthquakes our deepest sympathies and very best wishes for a speedy recovery.
Here in Nogales, we are fortunate that our grower operations in Mexico have run smoothly over the past months, providing what we see is another bountiful season of quality produce. (Of course the weather can change, but so far, so good)
