What We Do

Growing Locations

With ideal growing conditions—rich volcanic soil covered by the perfect ratio of sun to rain—it is no surprise that the avocado originated in Mexico more than 10,000 years ago. The state of Michoacán produces smooth, creamy Hass avocados year round—the only location in the world where a combination of elevation and multiple blooms allow year-round harvesting.
