Vidalia Onion Grower of the Year, 2017
A&M Farms is located in Lyons, GA, just down the road from Vidalia, in the heart of Toombs County (which some consider the epicenter of onion growing in the USA). We're family owned & operated, and employ over 50 folks at our HQ.
With only 45 calories per serving, sweet onions are naturally fat free and cholesterol free. They're also a source of dietary fiber, vitamin C, vitamin B6, potassium, and other key nutrients including folate, calcium and iron.
With an average of $5 - $6 of profit per 10# bag sold, the margins selling onions is much higher than comparable fundraising items such as candy bars or sugary soda. If 200 10# bags are sold, that'd represent +/- $1,000 profit.
Some general Q&A to help you gauge whether a sweet onion fundraiser is a good fit for your organization:
Our Vidalia Sweet Onions are available in early May & June, and our Peruvian Sweet Onions are available in November & December.
There is no minimum amount required when picked up directly from our packing shed in Lyons, GA. We can palletize & wrap all bags for easy loading via forklift. Delivery is also available, but is subject to transportation fees.
We provide two different amounts: a 3 pound bag, as well as a 10 pound bag. They're both filled with Jumbo sized onions. Jumbos range in diameter from 3" - 3.75" wide.
On average, you can expect $2 - $3 profit for every 3# bag sold, and $5 - $6 profit for each 10# bag sold.
While farming is our core focus & specialty, we also understand the importance of marketing & branding. Years ago, when the opportunity arose to acquire this name, we jumped at the opportunity. We're humbled & honored to represent our industry with this one-of-a-kind web address.
