“Quality is of the utmost importance to us and guides every improvement we make on the farm.”
Andy and Tannie Daniels started growing produce in Platte County Nebraska near Columbus in the early 80’s. They began by selling melons and sweet corn at a roadside stand in Columbus, and have steadily grown in the decades since. Andy, Tannie, Children Jason & Kelly, along with an expert crew, currently grow produce on about 600 acres in Platte County, this large amount of land allows them to provide fresh produce to a half dozen farmers markets, roadside stands, a csa program and wholesale produce orders supplying distributors throughout the Midwest region.
Kelly Daniels describes the farm this way:
“We run this farm as a family. It may be somewhat large compared to some growers but we run it together and are part of every decision and process on the farm. My dad Andy loves growing things and he loves a challenge. We started raising veggies in 1986 and have grown every year since.”
Through the years Daniels Produce has become well known in Nebraska for its sweet corn, melons, pumpkins, tomatoes, cucumbers, peppers and cabbage. Daniels Produce also produces canned items like salsa, pickles, sauerkraut, pickled jalapenos and jams.
