What is local to you? For us, it’s tradition. It's a tradition that's right for the farmer. Right for our customers. And right for Dierbergs – after all, we're a homegrown company too.
Meet Our Farmer Partners
Dierbergs is proud to support local farmers. What sets our local produce program apart is our network of partners, with some partnerships going back generations.
Rob's father, John, started a partnership with Dierbergs almost 40 years ago! After John retired, Rob stepped into his father's role at their family farm.
Dierbergs' partnership with Ochs Melon Co is one of the oldest. Ochs has been keeping the Dierbergs produce departments stocked with watermelons for 45 summers!
Mel started farming as a young man and has been growing Homegrown produce for over 57 years! Mel's favorite part of Homegrown is selling his produce to his local neighbors from Dierbergs.
Ben Roberts doesn't just sell poultry and eggs! Each Homegrown season, he also provides us with delicious tomatoes too. In the last decade, Dierbergs customers have come to look forward to the arrival of his crop each July.
Meyer Farms began as a horseradish farm that started growing corn just for our stores. As demand grew, Meyer brought in the Rellekes, family friends, neighbors and farmers, to help supply Dierbergs with local corn.
Nothing says summer like a sweet, juicy peaches. And these are grown here in state, just north of Missouri's bootheel. Bill's peaches are always popular with our customers, so be sure to get yours before they're gone!
