It all began with an immigrant family from Holland in 1954

Visser Farms is a team of great people who are joined together by the same belief - that “good farming is a way of life”. 

Environmental Approach

Our People

Our staff are comprised of caring, hard working men and women, who want to grow the best crops – and preserve the environment at the same time. We use our resources responsibly, returning the earth back to the way it is intended. We believe in implementing sustainability into day-to-day operations, so that’s part of our culture and long-term thinking. We are caretakers of the land -- and we have a responsibility to ensure that the next generation inherits this vital asset in as good, or better condition, than we did years ago.
