This fall, Windset Farms® celebrates its 25th Anniversary! Started as a four-acre bell pepper greenhouse in Abbotsford BC, the company has grown exponentially since its inception in 1996. A leader in setting some of the highest standards in seed selection, sustainable growing, packaging, biological pest control, food safety, and traceability and offering a full range of products including tomatoes, peppers, cucumbers, lettuce, strawberries, and many other specialty items – it seems a far cry from the four acres the Newell family started with. Yet, 25 years later, it is still 100 percent family-owned and operated, and still ‘your friends in freshness’.
Headquartered in Delta, BC, Windset Farms owns and operates millions of square feet of CEA high tech facilities across western North America and provides fresh produce to five different countries. One of key achievements over the past 25 years is that, while the size of the company may have grown, Windset is still family owned and is currently one of the largest controlled environment agriculture (CEA) producers and marketers in North America. Windset plans to continue leading the greenhouse industry through technology, sustainability, and growing techniques to help feed the world.
Windsets’ team has grown significantly over the years with numerous employees celebrating their 10, 15 and 20-plus year work anniversaries! Their dedication throughout the years is truly a testament to Windsets values, community, and culture. Whether they’ve been with the company since the start or have just joined the team; each and every employee’s input and dedication is valued. Employees truly are the heart and hands of Windset.
Thank you to all our customers and consumers who have supported and enjoyed Windset Farms produce. We look forward to another 25 years of producing fresh, nutritious, greenhouse grown veggies!
