The Martens name has been associated with farming in New York for decades. In fact, we are very proud of our family farm, our 4 generations of ownership, and our contributions to the surrounding communities. Martens Farms LLC has been growing potatoes in the Finger Lakes Region of Central New York for more than 90 years. The rich fertile muckland soils produces high quality premium red, yellow and white potatoes which we grow, package for sale, process for consumption and deliver.
We strive to be the best at what we do. Our grading standards are state of the art with optical grading and anti-bruising detection machines. Our packaging machines insures the weight of each packed product is highly accurate, and our storage faculties are climate controlled. Associations and affiliations with quality organizations allow us to remain current on the latest methods and maintain our high standard through ongoing audits and on-site inspections. The prestigious AIB International awarded Martens Packing Company with their highest rating of SUPERIOR, on August 14th, 2007.
Martens has developed generations of co-partnerships around the country with quality growers and farmers like themselves to assure a good supply of produce wholesalers and food processors with retail, industrial and bulk packs of fresh potatoes.
Our business has grown and prospered over the years because of our quality and reliable service. We are a licensed shipper, packer and re-distributor of Idaho potatoes with rail car siding nearby and 24,000 square feet of cooler space for handling and storing rail car quantities of product for distribution. We maintain our own trucks and do all of our processed product distribution in our own trucks. We also contract with dependable owner-operators for incoming product and outgoing packaged products.
