Todd Greiner Farms Packing, LLC, a Hart, Mich.-based asparagus grower/packer/shipper, announced plans to add a 5th packing line to its Hart facility. The expansion is scheduled to be completed in time for the start of the Michigan asparagus season in May.

The new equipment is part of ongoing improvements that have included the addition of a second packing house and two additional packing lines over the last three years.

“Our expansion needs are about the need for improved efficiency to meet the growing demand of our customers,” says Todd Greiner, president and CEO. “We know our customers are eager to bring in high-quality, local asparagus that meets their needs for a superior pack. This expanded packing line allows us to facilitate those needs and deliver product on a timely basis during our seasonal market window.”
