Year-round Midwestern grower Living Greens Farm is bringing new lettuce and microgreen products to the Midwest retail market. The new items are available in clamshell, micro-packaging and convenient bagged options. This will be the first time that fresh produce has been processed by an indoor grower in a bagged format.
