Little Leaf Farms is now offering home delivery in the greater Boston and New York City area through Amazon Fresh. COVID-19 has increased demand for grocery deliveries, and customers can now enjoy locally harvested and sustainable lettuce without ever leaving the comfort of their homes.
The partnership with Amazon Fresh is another step in Little Leaf Farms’ continued growth to meet rising demand. The company now has 10 acres of state-of-art greenhouse growing space, recently doubling growing capacity to produce more than two million boxes of fresh baby greens a month.
“Now more than ever, it is critical for families to have access to fresh, local and nutritious foods,” said Paul Sellew, Founder and CEO of Little Leaf Farms. “With many people staying home in response to the pandemic, we are excited to offer home deliveries through Amazon Fresh so customers can get high-quality greens shipped straight to their doorstep.”
While 95 percent of the country’s leafy greens are grown in California or Arizona and then trucked more than 3,000 miles across the nation, Little Leaf Farms ships to stores within 24 hours. The greens are much fresher and maintain a significantly longer shelf life than West Coast lettuce, which is around 13-25 days post-harvest by the time customers purchases it.
Fans attest to this too. Among recent reviews on Amazon Prime: “I can’t believe there can be such a difference in taste but this lettuce is out of this world tasty plus extremely crisp and stays that way for many weeks…. It is amazing. I will never buy another brand.”
“Reliable and all-time favorite lettuce. Always fresh, always crisp, and always crunchy. They also stay longer in my crisper than any other lettuce.”
“Absolutely my favorite lettuce. Stays crunchy forever. So tasty too. I will only buy this now.”
“World’s most perfect lettuce: OK – seriously. I didn’t have a clue how good lettuce is until I tried this. I eat this as a single salad. It is that good!!!!”
Little Leaf Farms products are also available through Whole Foods delivery services.
