Our controlled growing environment and hydroponic growing method allows us to produce healthy and fresh vegetables 365 days in a year while harvesting up to 10x of crops and using %90 less water.
Our greens shouldn’t travel more than we do! We grow our greens in local farms and sell our products locally. This approach allows us to harvest our greens in the morning and deliver afternoon, as fresh as possible!
