History of the Slayman Family

Joseph Slayman established the Slayman Fruit Co. in 1923. The company owned and assisted growers in the development of most deciduous varieties of fruits. The company coordinated picking, packing and sales of all varieties of fruits including plums, nectarines, peaches, apricots, grapes, apples, pears, persimmons, tangerines, melons and specializing in pomegranates.

Joseph Slayman's sons, Mitchell and Victor, took control of the company in 1938. They expanded the company to become the largest shipper of pomegranates in the country, then sold the business during the peak of their success in 1976.

Today, Deanna Slayman and Lisa Slayman operate Slayman Marketing Inc. (formerly Slayman Fruit Co.). Slayman Marketing Inc. has received the produce reporters trading membership award since 1958. This award is given to the top few percent of all fruit and vegetable producers in the United States and Canada for their outstanding integrity and service.
