Altar is a family owned and operated business with almost 60 years of experience, dating back to 1955.


Starting off with 20 acres and packing asparagus under the shade of a tree, we have become the world’s largest asparagus grower and shipper with over 30,000 acres of green asparagus in Mexico.


We have expanded our same vision to other commodities such as green onions, cilantro, radish and spinach.


Being the grower and shipper, we are committed to offer premium quality vegetables that exceed expectations in flavor, color and freshness.
