Our story begins in 1915 in Grant, Michigan where the Bolthouse family started farming vegetables. When William Herman Bolthouse took over the farm from his parents in 1938, he expanded and focused on the production and distribution of carrots. By 1950, Bolthouse Farms was a leading carrot supplier in the Midwest known for flavor and quality. In 1973, a second facility in Bakersfield, California was opened where year-round production was possible allowing broader distribution. In the 1990s, Bolthouse Farms brought a breakthrough product to the marketplace. Frustrated with the waste in the carrot business, a local Bolthouse Farms grower peeled and cut “ugly” carrots into pieces and sold them in bags. With that simple act, baby carrots were born, transforming the entire industry. Baby carrots seemed to make Americans eat more carrots, helping to double carrot consumption in the U.S. in the decade after they were introduced.
