G&R Farms hired Jon Ellis, who will be serving as the company's operations manager.
Ellis is a long-time resident of Glenville, GA, and brings an array of skills to the G&R Farms team, including experience in mechanical, logistics, quality control and manufacturing. Most recently he worked in the aerospace industry. Ellis also served in the U.S. Army for over two decades and recently retired from active duty.
As a fourth-generation family farm, G&R isn’t resting on its laurels and continues to grow and expand as a leading sweet onion supplier with both locally grown Vidalia onions as well as onions from Peru making the company a year-round supplier.
“As our business grows we are always looking for good people to join our family business,” said Walt Dasher, vice president of G&R Farms. “Jon brings a wealth of experience and talent, as well as integrity and work ethic that aligns with our company values and we are very pleased to have Jon join the G&R Farms team and look forward to his contributions.”
“I would have to say that I was drawn to G&R Farms because of the atmosphere and the team player environment, along with the energy they are placing on company growth,” said Ellis.
Ellis, his wife, Simone, and their two daughters, Emily and Jamie, are longtime residents of the area and have made Glennville home since 1998.
