Our History

Our History

Named after legendary naturalist John Muir, Muir Glen® was founded in 1991 by a group of entrepreneurs with extensive experience in agriculture and the tomato industry.

Since our company's founding over a decade ago, we've been committed to helping farmers choose to grow tomatoes organically. All of Muir Glen's tomatoes are field grown and vine ripened under certified organic practices — no synthetic pesticides, no chemical fertilizers, just gorgeous tomato taste, true to nature. Taste Muir Glen and we know you'll agree, the great care we take in processing our tomatoes shows in our products' spectacular flavor.

From California's San Joaquin Valley, the heart of the country's prime tomato growing region, we bring you our best-selling line of premium quality organic tomato products. And now we're branching out! Our commitment to the finest organic ingredients now extends to all the delicious vegetables and pasta in our premium organic soup line.
