Crown Equipment’s C-5 Series keeps Bland Farms on the move during busy harvest season

Located near Savannah, Georgia, Bland Farms began as a five-acre farm in the 1980s and has since grown to operate on 2,300 acres of land across the United States, becoming the world’s largest producer of Vidalia onions. The family-owned business also maintains growing operations in Peru and Mexico and ships about four million boxes annually. read more »»

Increase uptime in harsh working environments

Growing, packing and distributing agricultural products, especially in hot, dusty environments like California, can be a challenge.
