Why buying local is better
Built In Phases
From the first shovel in the ground in April 2015 to the first tomato crop being planted in November 2015, the project continues to amaze people who drive by the facility each day. With all 3 phases now completed, there is a hotbed of activity taking place in Delta.
We have built 45 acres of hi-tech greenhouses using the latest technologies that will enable us to grow through the winter months. Using High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting, we will be able to using supplemental lighting to compensate for the negative sunlight that we do not get November-March.
Our Ohio Brands
We spent countless hours working on what we would call our new tomatoes. With a unique seed variety that we had researched & trialed (we trial over 300 different varieties a year!) in our Research Greenhouse in Leamington, ON, we knew it needed to be something special. We researched the area, what the region stood for, and what Ohioans valued the most.
In the end, we settled on the core brand color of the state that fit seamlessly with our vision of the product which was was based on quality & taste.
