It’s that time of year when greenery abounds. For NatureFresh Farms, though, summer lasts for 365 every year. That’s because they operate from a 130-acre farm in Leamington, Ontario full of greenhouses and have 45 more acres in Delta, Ohio (learn more here.)
Greenhouses are crucial to their growing, allowing them to grow consistently flavorful vegetables year-round. That’s why they’re taking to the road – to showcase the ins and outs of their daily operations. What environment are your NatureFresh tomatoes, bell peppers and long English Cucumbers grown in every day? Come see for yourself!
The Greenhouse Education Center (GEC) is 38 feet long and constructed to replicate every component of NatureFresh’s growing process. From the recycled water to the Bumble Bee Eco-System, it’s all available for you to check out.
