In 1952, Critcher Brothers Produce was started in the Blue Ridge Mountains of northwestern
by four brothers: Dwight, Carl, Bill, and Tommy Critcher. Initially, these four brothers rented most of their farm land, and on it they grew their products -- cabbage and potatoes. As well as raising the crop, the brothers also delivered the produce themselves. In one instance, because no truck was available, cabbage was hauled in the trunk of a car so that the delivery would be made. North Carolina
Today, over 45 years later, Critcher Brothers Produce still has the same devotion to quality and service that it did when it was founded, despite the growth it has undergone.
The past four and a half decades have seen quite a bit of expansion in the operation of this produce company. Critcher Brothers Produce now ships fresh produce from as far north and south as
New Yorkand Florida, and as far east and west as North Carolinaand . The transportation division of Critcher Brothers Produce has grown as well, now having 23 trucks and 32 trailers at the disposal of the company. Texas
In addition to growing cabbage and potatoes year-round, Critcher Brothers Produce also sells watermelons, ornamental gourds and pumpkins, and Christmas trees (in season).
And, so as long as excellent quality and great service are popular, Critcher Brothers Produce will be open for business.
