NatureFresh Farms is now marketing tomatoes-on-the-vine and a diverse range of specialty tomatoes from its fully completed, 32-acre greenhouse facility in Leamington, Ontario. To the gutter, it measures 7.3 meters tall.
For its first crop, NatureFresh Farms successfully planted 235,000 tomato plants in May 2019. It took only eight to nine weeks from planting to reach the first harvest of tomatoes.
This state-of-the- art greenhouse is equipped with innovative technology such as self-driving cart systems, High-Pressure Sodium (HPS) supplemental lighting fixtures and vertical circulation fans.
The completion of this greenhouse brings NatureFresh Farms to more than 200 acres of family-owned facilities says Matt Quiring, executive retail sales accounts manager.
