Our 3.25-acre greenhouse grows lettuce hydroponically using a float bed growing system. It is located in the heart of the City of Cleveland, with the first crop harvested in late February 2013.
The greenhouse will produce about three million heads of lettuce and leafy greens and three hundred thousand pounds of herbs every year.
The leafy greens will be marketed to grocery stores and foodservice companies in Cleveland and to customers within a 150-mile radius around Cleveland.
