G&R Farms in Tattnall County, Georgia, began as a small family farm owned by Walter L. Dasher in 1945. From those modest beginnings, today the operation his sons and their sons have built includes nearly 5,000 total acres of southeast Georgia farmland that produces a variety of crops. G&R Farms is well known for growing corn, soybeans, peanuts, hay, wheat, rye and pecans. They are also home to a 1,500 cow-calf beef herd operation.
But a major point of pride for G&R Farms and the Dasher family is their reputation as leaders in the Vidalia® sweet onion industry. Each season they plant and grow some 900 acres of Vidalias®, harvesting between four and five million pounds annually. G&R packages their onions in state-of-the-art facilities on the farm, where quality and safety are the main objectives. G&R Farms has been growing, packing, marketing and shipping Vidalia® sweet onions for nearly seven decades. And their commitment to excellence in this industry is a deep-rooted family tradition.
