The Taylor Farms family is thrilled that our own home town of Salinas ranked second on the latest Gallup-Healthways State of American Well-Being report on how residents of 190 U.S. cities feel about their physical health, social ties, financial security, community and sense of purpose.
We’re especially proud that Taylor Farms plays an active, ongoing role in helping to revitalize Salinas. We specifically built our headquarters in downtown Salinas to rekindle investment and greater community engagement. And our new Western Growers Center for Innovation and Technology aims to attract a group of innovating entrepreneurial technology-oriented companies to Salinas to work collaboratively with farmers to make positive change for the future of agriculture.
The Gallup-Healthways report notes that the residents of high-ranking cities like Salinas have the lowest levels of stress in the country, eat healthy on a daily basis, and like their daily activities.
Our Taylor Farms Team loves making a difference in our local community. We support causes we believe in like The Boys & Girls Club and fund important projects including the neonatal facilities at the Salinas Valley Memorial Hospital. We also sponsor local coaches, through the Golden Whistle Award, who are strong mentors and leaders in our community, award scholarships, and make our neighborhoods, parks, and schools better. We’re thankful and proud of our success, but the most inspiring part for us is sharing our success with our community.
