La Gaitana Farms was founded in 1984 by four partners, they started with 10 acres of greenhouse production. In 1986 the Bleier family bought a minority share and a family member started working at the company. After facing many challenges, the company consolidated its operation. More land was bought in 2003 to meet market demand. Today there is still land to grow the production. In 2005 a modern postharvest facility was built with the highest quality standards to provide a continuous cold chain at every step of the process.
To this day two of its most important values remain:
quality and good service.
