After helping get a man on the moon, Robert Max Graves of Blount County decided to leave The Boeing Company to focus on raising his children and teaching them how to provide for a family.
He started farming and sold his produce at the Jefferson County Truck Grower’s Association Farmer’s Market in Birmingham, Alabama. He expanded quickly and began buying and reselling produce as well.
His three sons, Robert “Bobby”, Tim “Bud”, and Jeff were raised at the Farmer’s Market and in the fields. Together they worked to build a wholesale business, selling produce and tropical plants.
We wouldn't be here without you.
While working every day, we strive to get better at supplying our customers with what they need, because we understand that we cannot succeed if our customers do not succeed.
At Graves Farms, we are always looking to build a better foundation for the future while also paying tribute to the past.
