Vidalia Valley 

Vidalia Valley Onion fieldsAfter becoming firmly entrenched in the Vidalia and other sweet onion business, Stanley Farms has become vertically integrated by establishing its own processing company, Vidalia Valley (formerly known as Manning Farms). At the Valley we make our own relishes, dressings, salsas and sauces as well as other processed foods and ingredients.

We are proud to use our home-grown Vidalia Onions as the key ingredient in these family recipes. In fact, Vidalia Valley is the only processor in the country that grows our own Vidalia Onions just to make great gourmet and country style products. The company also has a hand in producing Vidalia Onion Rings, frozen onions and fresh cut produce.
