About Leger and Son
A family business, Leger & Son was built from hard work and dedication. C.M. (Buddy) Leger started growing and shipping watermelons throughout Georgia and Florida in 1965.
Learning the business from the ground up, Greg Leger, our current president, grew up picking and packing. His years of experience and dedication led to one of the leading grower/shippers in the southeast with seasonal offices in Immokalee, Fl., Arcadia, Fl., Rebecca, Ga., and Cordele, Ga which is our headquarters.
Over the years, we have stayed committed to constantly updating packing facilities and equipment for the greatest efficiency. In 2013, we made the decision to build a fully enclosed packing facility with automated weighing and sizing equipment to help manage quality. The expansion is leading to year round supply and opportunity.
