Heeman Strawberry Farm

MPP Kathryn McGarry, Rudy Heeman and Will Heeman

How good were those berries you enjoyed? Heeman Strawberry Farm invites its customers to go online, type in the 16-digit code on the bottom of the quart and rate the quality of strawberries they just ate. The unique code allows Heeman to track those berries back to the specific farm, field, picker and harvest time. As well as engaging customers, the system boosts food security. Should a recall ever be necessary, Heeman can track affected units from source to final sale. The system also streamlines payroll and generates crew efficiency reports. This new technology is helping ensure the "berry" best quality in every quart.
