    About the Author

    Real Sweet Shuman Farms LogoHeadquartered in the center of the Vidalia® growing region in southeast Georgia, family-owned Shuman Farms has been in the sweet onion industry for more than 35 years. Our legacy began in the mid-1980s with a small family farm in Reidsville, GA. Today, we are an industry-leading, year-round grower and shipper of premium sweet onions. We are dedicated to producing the highest quality sweet onions. Our sweet onions are harvested by hand and then moved to state-of-the-art packing facilities where they are further dried, cleaned, sorted, and graded for shipping. Sophisticated systems guarantee the premium quality of RealSweet® onion throughout our year-round program. Vidalia sweet onions have always been the benchmark at Shuman Farms, but their availability is seasonal (mid-April to late August). To ensure customers get the best-tasting, highest-quality sweet onions all year long, we have growing ventures in Peru, Texas, and Mexico. These regions provide the best quality onions throughout the year. We also offer organic sweet onions, an important part of the program as the organics category continues to grow in popularity.
