Lēf Farms is a local New England grower of fresh salad greens

Very few mouth-watering
salads start with a

seven day roadtrip.

Did you know that nearly 95% of the greens most people eat come all the way from California, Arizona and Mexico? That’s not exactly nearby, nor is it a recipe for freshness. Even many so-called “local” greens are really West Coast-grown — they just get new packaging slapped on at an East Coast repacking operation. After they’ve taken a long ride in the back of a shipping truck.

We think greens need to be grown where they’ll be eaten, so they hit your plate at the peak of freshness. That’s why all lēf greens are hydroponically grown right here in the heart of New England. They’ll get to you within 24 quick hours of being harvested. And they’ll change your perception of just how fresh, healthy and flavorful local greens can actually be.
