The Hoffmann Family of Companies continues their diversification through a signed letter of intent to acquire World Wide Farms.
Established in the 1980’s by founder Vern Myers in his basement, the then “The Herbal Garden” started by supplying locally grown herbs and leafy greens to Chicago area chefs. In 2008, the company became Word Wide Farms and quickly grew to be the trusted producer of organic and conventional fresh herbs and select leafy greens to many of the nation’s top retailers such as Whole Foods, Kroger, Sysco and meal delivery company Home Chef under the name Myer Farms.
From their USDA certified organic farmland operations in Woodstock, Illinois and greenhouses and packing facility in Wauconda, Illinois, Word Wide Farms grows organic basil, mint, chives, thyme, rosemary, cilantro and other herbs for distribution. World Wide Farms and the Myer Farms brand have become a leading brand for fresh culinary herbs with retailers, wholesalers and others looking for the best fresh culinary herb products available. The combination of providing the highest quality, locally grown herbs and leafy greens together with the best globally sourced fresh herbs in the world makes Word Wide Farms a unique and exceptional fresh culinary herbs supplier.
“We grow our organic products biodynamically, nurturing the soil so that our products have the highest nutrient and essential oils available, while taking care of the Earth and us at the same time. In our greenhouses we use the same biodynamic principles while incorporating the latest controlled environment technologies to extend our growing season in our USA farms and Mexico.” – World Wide Farms.
David Hoffmann, Chairman of Hoffmann Family of Companies shared his excitement of bringing Word Wide Farms into the family, saying: “The organic food market is exploding and World Wide Farms is the leading organic farm in the country. The company has an exceptional employee base starting at the top. We are retaining all employees and are excited to continue to help grow the company. In this regard, we have incorporated our family’s 80 acre farm in Missouri into the World Wide Farms company with plans for immediate expansion.”
With properties and businesses around the globe, the expansion of World Wide Farms comes naturally. The Hoffmann Family of Companies, a subsidiary of Osprey Capital, LLC have operations in 41 countries, over 100 commercial real estate properties nationally and own companies from the Pacific Coast, thru the Midwest, to the Gulf and Atlantic Coast such as Orange Line Oil in California, DHR International, JobPlex and Elevate Partners in Chicago, Texas Bragg Trailers in Mt.
