Elm Farm Foods (I-552)

Elm Farm Foods was first established as M. Winer Company (for Morris Winer) in 1895 on Salem Street in the North End of Boston. The expansion of this single small store in the next several decades preluded the rise and development of Elm Farm Supermarkets in the region, followed by the company’s shift from retail to wholesale. Winer family holdings have also included various affiliated trusts and corporations managing many aspects of the company’s business and real estate. The bulk of these documents depict the financial activities and accounting procedures of these company affiliates, focusing primarily on funds, investments, and shareholders. The collection also includes administrative documents, such as correspondence and memoranda, concerned with the management of real estate, retail operations, and personnel. Many of the real estate documents in this collection are not online; please contact AJHS at 617-226-1245 if you wish to have access to them.
