Greenhouse expansion to year-round tomatoes
March 26, 2018 By Greenhouse Canada
Leamington, ON – NatureFresh™ Farms has just announced a new 32-acre greenhouse facility in Leamington.
The new greenhouse facility will include supplemental lighting using high-pressure sodium (HPS) lamps – similar to ones currently used in their Ohio facility – allowing them to grow tomatoes year-round.
“The first full growing season in our Ohio greenhouse has been very successful so far, so with the same technology that we use in Ohio being implemented in our new Leamington greenhouse, we expect similar success,” says Matt Quiring, Executive Retail Sales Accounts Manager at NatureFresh Farms. “We should see higher production, greater efficiency in the growing process, and consistently high-quality products from our new Canadian greenhouse.”
A number of different varieties will be grown including TOMZ® Snacking tomatoes, tomatoes-on-the-vine and beefsteak tomatoes.
Construction on the new facility will start in 2018 this year, with production scheduled to begin in 2019.
