Our Story


Our Story



Weis-Buy Farms, Inc. is the brain-child of Chuck Weisinger, who had retired after a 27-year career in sales packinghouse management and field work with Six L’s Packing Company - and one full year of retirement boredom.

''My wife got tired of me hanging around the house, and she was also tired of me looking for the early bird specials at Perkins and Olive Garden because I was retired.''

Despite his retirement, Weisinger sat on the Board of Directors of United Fruit and Vegetable. Some of the board members suggested that Weisinger get a job doing what he knew best, and become productive again.

"And, so, we started out in the back bedroom of our house with Sheryl doing the books and me describing, buying the produce, and routing the trucks."

Along with Mark Weisinger, Johnny Goodnight, Hank Douglas, and a small staff, Weis-Buy Farms, Inc. was able to expand the business, turning into a full-service operation growing melons in Central America, and tomatoes and cucumbers in Florida, Georgia, and Alabama, over the last 22-years.

In that time, Weis-Buy was able to cultivate relationships with many customers and also instate new ideas, including pricing forward long-term deals, marketing in many areas in conjunction with advertising, e-mails, product certification and our historical perspective on marketing and product safety.

"The advantage of our on-site service has allowed us to survive in a business that is constantly changing."

Chuck Weisinger is the CEO and principal officer of Weis-Buy Farms, Inc. It is his foresight that has made a back bedroom hobby into one of the most highly respected, and successful full-service produce companies in existence today.

Mark Weisinger brings the retail history of big business to the Weis-Buy family and sixteen years of experience in the produce business to his resume. He was initially involved with the east coast division of Weis-Buy importing melons from Guatemala, and later involved with Weis-Buy's repack operation in Atlanta, GA. He is currently in the Ft. Myers office.

Arthur Ellis who has grown up in the Farming business and was involved in both trucking and agriculture for many years before he was involved with Weis-Buy lends a special touch to our sales expertise.

Michael Shapiro has been with Weis-Buy for several years. He is a former member of the PMA government affairs committee. Important produce issues addressed were traceability and food safety. Mike travels to Nogales, Arizona each year to build our relationships with shippers helping Weis-Buy deliver good produce at low prices to our customers.

The office staff includes Christine Marcel, who handles payables and receivables on a prompt and courteous basis. They make an efficient team and ensure all transactions will be looked at individually.
