Hendrix Farms began in 1976 when R.E. Hendrix, founder and owner grew his first Vidalia Onion. The distributing company, Hendrix Produce Inc. started in 1986 as a produce distributor of Vidalia Onions and has continued to grow and sell fresh produce to America’s largest food retailers. Hendrix Produce is a proud family-owned business operated by R.E. Hendrix and his son, Kevin Hendrix.
