How BrightFarms Delivers Quality Leafy Greens Fresh to the Market

The recent lettuce recall centered around Salinas Valley-grown Romaine further underscores the value of growing leafy greens and other crops in a controlled environment. BrightFarms is one of these growers. 

Janeen Wright, Editor of Greenhouse Grower, recently caught up with Denise DeRue, Head Grower at BrightFarms’s Bucks County, PA, location. In the video below, the two of them discuss the advantages of controlled environment lettuce production, including less pest pressure, the ability to provide a locally grown crop year round, and, of course, a reduced risk of food safety incidents.
