FAQ

 

What does “Air Grown” mean?

Air Grown, also known as Aeroponics, means that plants grow with their roots exposed to air. Their feet are in the clouds, so to speak! These roots are periodically misted with nutrient-rich water—and they grow twice as fast as plants grown in soil since more oxygen gets to the roots.

Why are your greens so safe?

Our Air Grown Salads are grown indoors in exceptionally sanitary conditions away from all dangers that can cause food borne illness. No birds, canal water, insects, animals or the like are allowed in. The result? beautiful, safe and delicious salads.

Why do your products taste so great?

What can you grow?

What are the benefits of growing greens close to shoppers?
