In 2018 Taylor Farms opened two-state-the-art training facilities focused on employee education and development through engaging and hands-on experience with highly technical and sophisticated machinery. As of today, 350 employees at various capacities, have been through our training facility and acquired new skills to continue to grow with us.
Taylor Farms Center for Learning
In 2017, Taylor Farms partnered with The First Tee of Monterey County to open the Taylor Farms Center for Learning. The 5,000-sq.ft. building is outfitted with the latest smart technology to support Salinas based youth in their academic development.
In 2015, the Taylor family developed a new corporate headquarters located in downtown Salinas with the intent of the development being a catalyst for an economic revitalization of Main Street. Since 2015 the Taylor family has purchased several other downtown buildings, which have been revitalized and leased out to local business owners including restaurants, bookstores, and the Western Growers Center for Innovation. The goal is to drive progress as the city becomes an even more special place to live.
Our goal and focus in adopting automation is to create a more desirable work environment for our employees and to increase productivity. Utilizing automation to remedy repetitive, labor intensive roles, provides an opportunity to transition job roles away from manual labor and towards higher skilled, higher paid positions.
We have invested in the development and expansion of automated harvesting for the produce industry. In the past 10 years we have introduced the industry first automated harvesters for romaine, cabbage, celery, and spinach with futuresights set on broccoli and iceberg lettuce.
