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 that same year, 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, OH.
We have built 45 acres of cutting-edge greenhouses using the latest technologies that will enable us to grow through the winter months. Using High Pressure Sodium (HPS) lighting, we are able to use supplemental lighting to compensate for the lack of sunlight from November to March.
Our Ohio Brands
We spent countless hours deciding what varieties to plant in our new greenhouses. With unique seed varieties that we researched and trialed in our Leamington-based Discovery Center, we knew these new greenhouses would be 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 because it fit seamlessly with our vision of the product, which is based on quality & taste.
