Kegel’s Produce hosts Advantage Lancaster for facility tour and demo.

Kegel’s Produce hosted the Advantage Lancaster group on 7/31/2018 for a tour of our facility and a live cooking demo with our Salesman and honorary Chef Eloy Jaimes. Young men and women from Lancaster City were shown how Kegel’s Produce operates and what we do in house. They were also treated to a health food cooking demonstration by Eloy and got to sample the delicious meal that was prepared. Members of our sales staff took the group through our warehouse and fresh cut department to show them how fresh produce is turned into pre-cut and packaged pieces ready to prepare or eat.

2017 Wine Grape Sale

Unlike store bought wines, each bottle of homemade wine is truly unique. Each sip tells a story that begins in the vines of California, is narrated by the personalities who inspired your style, and is completed by the craft of your own hands. In our world that is continually searching for a relationship with the sourcing and manufacturing of our food, nothing will compare to the oldest and most refined handcrafted experience, wine making.

Each season our coolers are filled with only the finest quality grapes. In addition to our grapes, we offer an extensive variety of 100% Regina Grape Juice, which comes already crushed, balanced and ready for fermenting.

Kegel’s Produce is excited to watch your own wine family traditions grow and perfect techniques with each vintage. We are eager to work with you to ensure each glass you produce is made perfect!
