Although Lehr Bros. Inc. is known for potatoes, vice president of farming Pete Belluomini likes to mix it up a little in the fields. This year the Edison, Calif.-based grower is trying organic yellow onions.
Belluomini said he didn’t put in too many acres for the first season in the deal.
“I want to see how they do before we go too big,” he said.
Lehr Bros., which grows organic carrots for Kern Ridge Growers, has had an organic branch since 1997, Belluomini said.
