As their operation grew, so did their families. Three of Vernon’s sons, Don, Vern and David learned about farming from the time they were very young and the family business transitioned in the 1970s’ and 80s to the new generation.
Like their predecessors, they too, looked for new opportunities. They decided to take a risk and began growing potatoes in South Florida, the only place in continental United States where the climate remained warm enough for a crop to thrive during winter months providing consumers with fresh, newly harvested potatoes during winter and early spring months. This innovative idea grew Troyer Brothers into a year round operation. Over the years Troyer Brothers has been slowly perfecting the techniques required to produce the highest quality, best tasting potatoes on the market.
