Our Story

The Erie Produce Company and the Howard James Company were both incorporated in 1921.

In May of 1953, Don Slater began working for the Howard James Company. In 1968, Don and his partner Tony Darowski purchased Howard James and became the sole owners. In 1972, Howard James Company merged with Erie Produce Company and Erie James Limited was born. Today, we remain active in the growing, packing, sales and distribution of greenhouse-grown vegetables as well as field-grown fruits and vegetables.
