World Wide Farms is a grower, packer and distributor of fresh culinary herbs and greens. Our original company was founded by Vern Meyer, operating out of a small barn, in 1986. In 2008 we became World Wide Farms – recognizing that we own and operate farms in the United States and Mexico. Along with other global strategic partners, we can offer an uninterrupted supply of the finest fresh produce available anywhere.

We grow our organic products biodynamically, nurturing the soil so that our products have the highest nutrient and essential oils available, while taking care of the Earth and us at the same time. In our greenhouses we use the same biodynamic principles while incorporating the latest controlled environment technologies to extend our growing season in our USA farms and Mexico.

Our customer base represents some of the largest retailers, food service and home replacement customers in the greater Midwest. We look forward to work with you and exceed your expectations. 

Our Team


Our awesome team of employees at World Wide Farms work hard every day to help us exceed your expectations! We are proud to say that many of our employees have been with us for over 10 years. We are grateful for their dedication and strong work ethic, no matter which area of the farm they work in. When you think of farming, you automatically think of the people in the fields – but that’s only part of our workforce. In addition to our great field employees, we also have an exceptional group of employees who work in our packing, shipping, cooler operations, transportation and front office.
