Our Story

A small group of Utah farmers needed help selling their fresh produce to communities and grocers. Charles H. Dredge and his company, CH Dredge, took on the responsibilities of packaging and selling onions and various other produce for the group of local Utah growers.


In 1977, Dredge sold the business to four Utah Farmers and a group of investors from Texas. From then on the company was known as Utah Onions. The farming investor group was able to grow the company and soon Utah Onions became known as a grower, shipper and packager of quality crops. 


The company started to take on more packing and shipping responsibilities over time, bringing in trade partners, Hartley’s Best and Oregon Trail Produce, in the late 1980s.


 In August of 2005, a group of three, each with their own roots in the onion and produce world, Shawn Hartley, Trent Hartley and Brad Dahl, purchased Utah Onions from the investment group. They continued to build the company, expanding it with additional growers and farmers.


Today, Onions 52 (Utah Onions) is one of the nation’s leading grower-shippers of quality yellow, red, white, sweet and organic onions. With growing/packaging partners in six states as well as Mexico it was clear they had outgrown their borders and their name so Utah Onions no longer fit. In 2017 they changed their name to Onions 52. New name but the same quality and care that they started with over 75 years ago.
