USING NEXT GENERATION FARMING TECHNIQUES, WE CAN PRODUCE THE FRESHEST, MOST SUSTAINABLE TOMATOES ALL YEAR LONG.
OUR GROWING PROCESS
While our growers have decades of experience growing tomatoes, our next generation agriculture has great advantages over traditional methods of growing. Our hydroponic process includes drip irrigation, using only 10% of the water of field grown tomatoes and eliminating the runoff of fertilizers into surrounding waterways.
We use IPM - integrated pest management - to control harmful bugs and bumble bees to naturally pollinate our plants. By lighting and heating the greenhouse in winter, we are able to bring our customers mid-summer tomatoes all year long. Our proximity to the market allows us to leave our tomatoes on the vine until fully ripened, assuring the best taste and nutrition in every tomato.
Our 7.5 acre glasshouse is located just outside of the Chicago metropolitan area in Rochelle, IL. Nearly 30 feet high and covering over 7 football fields, the structure uses diffused glass and radiated heat, keeping our tomatoes at a perfect temperature to create great tasting tomatoes year round. Summertime fresh in the middle of winter!
