David Hollinger, Founder of Four Seasons Produce, Inc., shared his father’s love of farming and sold his first garden crop to a store near Ephrata, Pennsylvania when he was just eight years old. David’s infatuation with fresh produce deepened as he traveled with his father to purchase produce for the family farm market as a child. As an adult, he felt compelled to serve, so he and his wife, Debbie, spent several years in rural Mississippi providing volunteer services in a farmer’s co-op. After returning home, David resumed work in the family produce market, buying produce and managing the company. It was then, in 1976, that Four Seasons Produce, Inc. came to life. Local bankers recognized Hollinger’s personal integrity and potential with a small loan and a line of credit. With it, Hollinger purchased a 5,000 square foot building, a few trucks and equipment so he could supply local restaurants and markets with fresh produce. To this day Four Seasons Produce Inc. remains a family-owned business. David is active as Chairman & Founder, and his son Jason Hollinger is the President & CEO.
