Kern Ridge Growers is a year-round shipper of California carrots. Our history dates back to the early 70’s, when we started packing Cello carrots under our Kern Ridge label. Our ownership consists of six individuals who have a combined carrot experience of well over 100 years. Most of our carrots are grown in the rich, sandy loam soil near the mountain range at the southern end of the fertile San Joaquin Valley.
Kern Ridge has carrots to serve your needs 52 weeks of the year, rain or shine. Our carrots are harvested with a four-row Vogel Carrot Harvester, with a volume of up to 150,000 pounds of carrots per hour in almost any type of soil condition.
In the 90’s, carrots have become very popular in the new “ready-to-eat” cut-and-peeled form. Kern Ridge maintains a state-of-the-art baby peeled carrot plant that can fill your order any time of the day or night.
We keep our plant neat and clean and welcome visitors. When you are in Kern County, please come by and let us take you on a tour through our facility.
Kern Ridge serves as an easy, single-stop carrot supermarket. When you call us, you can be sure your order will be filled promptly and accurately by our experienced shipping staff.
We understand the importance of giving you your order on time, and as ordered. We know how hard it is to coordinate trucks for pick-up, and we will do all we can to make your life a little easier. We will frequently help by picking up items at other shipper’s warehouses, and when you ask, we will be happy to shift your load for you.
Our sales representatives are courteous and strive to take care of all your carrot needs. Although carrots are our trademark, we also grow, pack and ship bell peppers and chile peppers from late May through late July. We pride ourselves in offering good quality and service at a reasonable price. If ad pricing is important to you, just ask, and we will try to help promote your products.
