About Shuman Farms

Welcome to Vidalia® Country

Headquartered 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 two generations. 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.

After decades of farming and growing the world's sweetest onions, we continue to proudly share with you what has been part of our family. To us, it's always been about more than just onions. It's about growing a family, a business, a culture of giving back, and a product that we're proud to share.

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 sweet onions 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.


We firmly believe in giving back in the communities where are products are sold. That's why we founded programs like Healthy Family Project, which has raised more than $7.5 million for children's charities and helps families eat healthier. Working with organizations like Healthy Family Project and Feeding America has allowed us to not only help children eat healthier, but has also helped us provide support to those families who face hunger every day.

We're still a family-owned business today, and we pride ourselves on providing the sweetest, highest quality and safest sweet onions available. We hope you enjoy including our products in your family's meals as much as our family enjoys growing them.
