As most people are preparing for Thanksgiving, our Taylor Farms team is busy preparing for our semi-annual move, where we do the unimaginable and transition our entire vegetable production facility 550 miles – from Salinas, California to Yuma, Arizona!
Here are 5 things you may not know about “The Move”:
Why move? As a source-based supplier, we follow mother nature as the veggie growing season transitions each winter from California’s Central Coast to Yuma, Arizona. We strategically move our facility close to our growing base to ensure quality and freshness of product.
Over 200 people are involved in “the move”, which includes a diverse group of department leaders from our maintenance, production, engineering, shipping and food safety teams.
56 Hours – The time it takes to pull apart and put back together all our facility’s equipment (which also includes the 10-hour drive to get the machines to their Yuma location).
We move 1400 tons of equipment with 140 flatbeds!
“The Move” has environmentally friendly benefits, reducing the amount of food miles our raw product travels – saving about 445 trucks off the road, 650,000 gallons of gas and 4 million food miles each move!

Preheat oven to 450 degrees Fahrenheit. Slice fingerling potatoes in half, toss in olive oil and season with salt and pepper. Place on rimmed baking sheet and roast until golden brown and crispy, about 30-35 minutes, flipping halfway.
Season steaks with salt and pepper. Heat oil and butter in a large heavy bottom skillet on high heat. Sear steaks until medium rare, flipping once, 4-5 minutes on each side. Let rest on a cutting board before slicing, about 10 minutes.
In a large salad bowl toss Taylor Farms Wedge Chopped Salad Kit with all of the components and dressing. (Yes, it’s that easy!)
