Green Life Farms has added 11 herb varieties to its lineup of clean, fresh, hydroponically-grown lettuce, further expanding its sales lineup and footprint across the Southeast U.S. The company is growing its meal kit delivery partnership with a major U.S. home meal kit delivery service. In addition to supplying baby leafy greens, Green Life Farms will now provide individual herbs and custom herb blends to the meal kit company under a long-term supply contract. Herbs will also be available at grocery locations across South Florida.
Using Nutrient Film Technique growing technology at its 2.5-acre Punta Gorda, FL location, Green Life Farms hydroponically grows basil, chives, cilantro, dill, mint, parsley, oregano, rosemary, sage, tarragon and thyme. Herbs will be sold in individual pots at grocery locations or bagged for inclusion in meal kit deliveries.
