US (VA): Neighborhood greenhouse delivers farm-to-front door

The Neighborhood Harvest, a greenhouse farming operation, is taking the farm-to-market concept one step further and going farm-to-front door.

Ever since SmartBasil Farms opened in Suffolk in 2012, the company has seen steady growth. In 2015, The Neighborhood Harvest, the home delivery service of herbs, greens and lettuce, was launched.

Most recently, the company added administrative offices and a packing center at Suffolk Industrial Park due to a growing customer base and additional delivery routes.

“We started with a focus group of 20 in Virginia Beach,” said company President Thomas Vandiver. “We now have 43 employees who farm, harvest, market and deliver to more than 3,000 customers.”
