Fish Farms now offers fresh tomatoes from July through September, adding to Taylor & Fulton's October-through-June central and western Florida tomato deal.

Both companies are enthusiastic about the new relationship that will provide premium product to their customers 12 months a year.

Taylor & Fulton is currently shipping fresh mature green, vine-ripe and Roma tomatoes from Palmetto until July and will offer tomatoes from Fish Farms in Tennessee beginning in July.
