The Field to Carton journey begins in our greenhouses at Hirzel Canning Company & Farms, producers of Dei Fratelli products. Here, just behind the Hirzel family's original farm home, GMO-free seed varieties germinate and take root.
Weeks of careful nurturing prepare the seedlings for timely transplanting into the fertile soils of Northwest Ohio and Southeast Michigan.
Our tomatoes are harvested at their peak of flavor-after the summer sun has fully ripened them-providing for the perfect flavor-filled tomato—the way that nature intended. The fresh picked tomatoes need not endure a lengthy, brusing ride to our canneries because of the close proximity of our growers' fields to our facilities.
Dei Fratelli tomatoes are processed in just a matter of hours of being picked-ensuring that the garden fresh flavor is impressingly preserved. You can taste our commitment to quality from Field to Carton in every Dei Fratelli Truly™ product.
