Cuts of Color is owned and operated by Rita Anders of Weimar, Texas. Rita began growing greenhouse tomatoes in 1979 when her grandfather retired and wanted her to take over the family business. When she took over the business, she started out with a 4,800 sq. foot greenhouse growing tomatoes only. Within a matter of 5 years, the business expanded to 20,000 sq. feet and in 1990, grew another 12,000 sq. feet. Growing tomatoes was the sole crop until 2005 when Rita decided to downsize and diversify in order to grow other crops and flowers.
During this time, Rita decided to expand her business to grow beautiful flowers along with several vegetable varietes, and various herbs. The decision for doing this was based on the ever rising costs of fuel. This is how Cuts of Color came about. To this day, Rita believes her decision to grow flowers and herbs in addition to growing tomatoes, was the most rewarding experience of her agricultural career. She truly enjoys growing her crops and making bouquets and finds customer satisfaction is her top priority. To date, Cuts of Color consists of 26,000 sq. foot of greenhouses in addition to two acres in outside flower beds. Cuts of Color also practices sustainable agriculture using organic growing methods whenever possible.
