Kingsville, Ont.-based fruit and vegetable grower Mucci Farms has acquired Hacienda North Farms, a 159-acre greenhouse facility in Coatsworth, Ont.

Hacienda North Farms has been a partner of Mucci Farms for nearly a decade, specializing in the cultivation of bell peppers. 

With this acquisition, Mucci Farms expands its greenhouse footprint. The acquisition also includes a land bank spanning 120 acres. 

The company said it is committed to growing bell peppers in the new farms but will explore opportunities for diversification.

"Working directly with Hacienda Farms for several years has given us insight into the facilities and the quality product that's grown there," said Bert Mucci, CEO of Mucci Farms, part of the newly launched Cox Farms business, in a release. "Bringing them into our fold presents an exciting opportunity to further enhance our ability to meet the needs of our retail partners."
