At Little Leaf Farms, we grow the freshest, best tasting baby greens for East Coast salad lovers all year round.
Little Leaf Farms has built the most modern, technologically-advanced greenhouse in the world. Our ten-acre facility in Devens, Massachusetts is centrally located to bring the freshest and best-tasting baby lettuce to the East Coast.
We use top-quality glass to harness the power of natural sunlight to grow our greens. We supplement sunlight with efficient LED lights that use 40% less electricity than conventional grow lights.
The spine and ribs of lettuce provide dietary fiber, while vitamins and minerals are concentrated in the delicate leaf.
Hydroponics is the practice of growing plants without soil. Growing hydroponically protects our natural topsoil from the soil erosion that is caused by conventional farming practices.
We nourish our greens with 100% recycled rainwater - captured on the greenhouse roof, sanitized by UV lights, and stored. With this approach, we use 90% less water than field grown greens.
Over 95% of all U.S. lettuce is grown and processed in California and Arizona. West Coast lettuce travels 3,000 miles to the East Cost and can spend two or more weeks on a truck. This process results in food waste, shorter shelf life, and less nutrition.
We use a sustainable heating system that recirculates CO2 to optimize plant development.
We never use GMOs, harmful chemicals, or pesticides on our greens.
Our tender baby greens are harvested at their peak of flavor and delivered to stores within 24 hours.
On average, Americans eat 30 pounds of leafy greens and lettuce every year.
