Grower Packer Shipper
L. G. Herndon Jr. Farms, Inc. is a family owned and operated business. We have been in business for over 30 years as growers of Vidalia Sweet Onions, Supersweet Corn, Green leafy vegetables, and most recently Sweet Potatoes. Herndon Farms originated in 1979, under the inspiration of L. G. “Bo” Herndon Jr. He began his farming career with only one small tractor, a small piece of land, and a few hogs. His wife Gill, worked outside of the home for 14 years to take care of the household expenses so the farm’s income could be generated back into the business. Over the course of 30 years, the farming operation has grown. We now produce 500 acres of Vidalia Sweet Onions, 900 acres of sweet corn (white, yellow, and bi-color), 500 acres of leafy green vegetables (collards, mustard, turnips and kale) and 200 acres of Sweet Potatoes. As a family business, Bo’s nephew Jason, manages the farm, his wife Gill and daughter Maghen Mitchell work with long time employee Carolyn Wilkes running the day to day office duties. We strive to maintain a reputation of high-quality and consistency that has come to define the Herndon name. We are members of the Vidalia-Montgomery Chamber of Commerce and the Toombs-Montgomery-Vidalia Onion Growers Association.
