Green Wheels: NatureFresh Greenhouse to Visit Heinen’s Stores

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!
