Jimmy Accomazzo founded the Accomazzo Company in 1968 in Tolleson AZ, primarily as a cotton farm that used alfalfa as a rotation crop. In 1987, Jimmy changed the course of the family business, as he recognized the ever-expanding need for hay in the winter months when good, fine-quality baled alfalfa hay was significantly more difficult to produce. Over the next few years, he built a series of hay barns to store the hay, rather than sell it all in the summer months like the other hay farms. This proved to be a monumental decision that determined the future direction of the family business. Now the company could provide premium fine-quality baled hay to customers when others could not. With the understanding that Tolleson hay is Tolleson hay, and doesn’t grow differently on his farm than others, Jimmy set out to farm it better, cleaner, and more efficiently. The Accomazzo Company would give its customers exactly what they ask for when others could or simply would not. Since Jimmy’s passing in 1993, the Accomazzo family has expanded these core ideals. The family strives for excellence in agriculture, and their legacy is to leave the ground in better shape than they found it.
