USING STATE-OF-THE-ART FARMING PRACTICES, WE PRODUCE THE MOST DELICIOUS, SUSTAINABLE TOMATOES YEAR-ROUND.
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 integrated pest management to control harmful bugs and use bumble bees to naturally pollinate our plants, creating a natural ecosystem. By lighting and heating the greenhouse in winter, we are able to bring our customers mid-summer tomatoes year-round. 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 15 acre glasshouse is located just outside of Chicagoland in Rochelle, IL. Nearly 30 feet high and covering over 14 football fields, the structure uses diffused glass and radiated heat, keeping our tomatoes at a perfect temperature to create great tasting tomatoes year-round.
