We're Still Growing
Our production crew, which has always followed strict food-safety hygiene practices, is continuing to work and provide fresh, safe and clean produce to markets in the Greater Boston area.
Avoiding Contamination since 2013
Our 5 Factors in making this all possible
1. Modular Controlled Approach
Our modular (Mod) indoor grow units are 100% concealed and controlled. Before anyone enters the concealed environments, they put on a clean lab coat, hairnet and gloves, within a separate anteroom, to prevent the introduction of airborne microbes and insects. We control everything our plants breathe from humidity, light, wind and temperature in a completely sealed environment that is insect-free and weather resistant.
2. Clean Water
We ﬁlter and fuss over water to control for contaminants, chemicals, heavy metals and other unwanted impurities through a multi-step, quality-controlled puriﬁcation system.
3. Optimal Nutrition
Our plant and nutritional science team manages and delivers optimal and personalized nutrition to each crop. We want our plants to thrive so that you will too.
4. Fresher, Longer
We deliver fresh greens from farm to grocer within 24 hours, and only deliver within 300 miles, so our greens stay fresh longer - up to 4 weeks after purchase.
5. Effective & Efficient
Our team and partners are always modifying and advancing the technology and process needed to harvest the freshest crops year-round, anywhere. Our multi-cut system improves our efficiency so we can harvest 10-12 times more than outdoor farms in a year. We use 5% of the land as outdoor farms and 95-99% less water than outdoor farms to grow the same amount of food.
Food safety has always been our top priority and feeding our community with the freshest greens, free of any pesticides, chemicals or contagion, is now more important than ever
We thank you for your continued support and we will continue to provide updates as they become available.
