Southern supplier stories.
Although these aren’t the only southern suppliers we work with, we chose a few to demonstrate the high quality you can find right here within our region.
In the early 1900s, Charlie Brooks and his son Dick started growing avocados, grapefruit, limes, and mangos in the subtropical climate just south of Miami. In 1928, Dick rode to New York City inside a refrigerated truck filled with Florida avocados to make sure the fruit would arrive fresh. That journey opened up new markets for the farm. In the 1960s, Pal Brooks followed his father into the farming business. Today, he and his experienced team oversee operations that grow premium tropical fruits in Florida.

Today, the Corbitt family has been immersed in the agriculture industry for more than fifty years, and they supply Publix with delicious watermelons and pumpkins.

Monday Night Brewing†
Owners Jeff Heck, Jonathan Baker, and Joel Iverson started brewing beer together on Monday nights in 2006.

At that time, the three future founders had day jobs, and would ceremoniously loosen their ties on Monday evenings before brewing each week's batch. Though beer quickly became more than just a weeknight hobby, the loosened necktie has remained with their brand through the years as a symbol of making every day (not just weekends) exceptional.
