G&R Farms is proud to welcome new hire Jon Ellis, who will serve as operations manager.
Ellis, a long-time resident of Glenville, GA, 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 United States Army for more than two decades and recently retired from active duty.
As a fourth-generation family farm, G&R continues to expand as a sweet onion supplier with both locally grown Vidalia onions, as well as onions from Peru making them a year-round supplier.
“As we grow, 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.”
Ellis had similar sentiments when asked about why he was looking forward to joining G&R. “I was drawn to G&R Farms because of the atmosphere and the team player environment, along with the energy they place on company growth,” said Ellis.
Ellis and his wife, Simone, as well as their two daughters, Emily and Jamie, are longtime residents of the area and have made Glennville home since 1998.
