Flavor Pic Tomato

Flavor Pic Tomato Birmingham's premiere tomato repacking operation - serving the Southeast with flavorful, quality, homegrown tomatoes year-round. In 1990, Mr.

With over 50 years of experience in farming, Leon Johnson began growing and delivering farm fresh tomatoes and vegetables direct to local stores and restaurants. Johnson opened Flavor Pic Tomato Company, a repack operation in Birmingham Alabama. This family operated and owned business not only supported their farm, it also supported five additional local farms and families in the surrounding area.

The commitment to quality Mr. Johnson upheld during the Alabama tomato season business brought an intense consumer demand for Flavor Pic to begin a year round program. As a year round tomato re-packer, Flavor Pic Tomato quickly filled the need many retailers & restaurants were seeking on regional and national levels. In 2012 Flavor Pic Tomato partnered with Alex Kontos Fruit, to become one the largest tomato repackers in the Southeast. This partnership strengthened the accessibility and purchasing power allowing FPT & AKF to give customers a competitive pricing program, while continuing to provide exceptional quality and customer service. We are committed to hold true to our family values while providing complete customer satisfaction.

The REVISED Home and Market Garden IPM Slide Chart (Urban Farming Toolkit) is here! This IPM Toolkit was first release in 2015 and was an immediate hit. This is something you can take to a farmer cooperative store or a garden shop to look for organic and conventional insecticides available there in small packaging (non-restricted use pesticides). We have printed over 10,000 copies of these over the years that are in circulation! Co-authors include Harli Willis, André Luiz Biscaia Ribeiro da Silva, Makayla Gothard, Henry Fadamiro, Rammohan Rao Balusu, Brittany Carter, Annabelle Lang, Dani Carroll, Eric Schavey, Chip East, Neil Kelly, and Ann Chambliss.

Congratulations to all! This was a huge endeavor to complete. Thank you to all funding agencies and Extension Teams that worked on this together! The Farming Basics Mobile App also has IPM recommendations for insect pests that ties to this slide chart. Please get your copy from Extension events or contacting an Alabama Extension office near you.

Funded by USDA Beginning Farmer Program, Southern SARE (Sustainable Agriculture Research and Education) Program, USDA Organic Research and Education Program, CPPM/Extension IPM, and ADAI Specialty Crops Block Grants.
