C&E Farms was established in 1986 by Phil Colson and Lester Erlemeier in Cheriton, Virginia. These two men were the pioneers of hydro-cooling green beans, setting a new industry standard. Their innovation, along with a dedication to quality and service, have made Red Barn Label beans a top choice.
C&E Farms processes more than 750,000 bushels of beans annually off of 5,000 acres. Our territory ranges from Florida to Pennsylvania, with packing facilities in Cheriton, Virginia and Parrish, Florida.
Construction is complete of our new office in Virginia.
