CAN (ON): NatureFresh kicks off 2018 growing season

NatureFresh Farms' Leamington, ON greenhouses have started full production for the 2018 growing season. In addition to greenhouse-grown peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers, NatureFresh Farms is now offering organic sweet bell and mini sweet peppers.

As one of the largest bell pepper growers in North America, NatureFresh Farms continues to offer red, orange, and yellow sweet bell peppers for North American consumers. NatureFresh Farms recently expanded their organically-grown offerings. Along with organic sweet bell peppers, NatureFresh Farms is now growing organic sweet mini peppers for North American consumers.

With production now beginning in Ontario, the Tomz Snacking Tomato line will be grown in both Ontario and Ohio greenhouses. The Tomz Snacking Tomato line includes red grape, orange grape, yellow grape, cocktail, and red cherry tomatoes, as well as the new Tomberry Tomatoes.

NatureFresh Farms also provides consumers with Long English and mini cucumbers. With a recent expansion to boost production, cucumbers from NatureFresh Farms will be available year-round.

Produce grown in NatureFresh Farms Ontario greenhouses will consistently be shipped to North American retailers starting in April 2018. But what Niels Klapwijk, the company’s Retail Account/Procurement Manager, is most excited about this season is the wide variety of Ontario-grown produce options now being offered by NatureFresh Farms: “By increasing the variety of commodities grown at our farm, NatureFresh is further defining itself as a leader within the fresh produce industry. This form of growth for the company is very exciting.”
