Lake Worth, Florida-based Green Life Farms, a controlled-environment agriculture grower, has announced its partnership with Cheney Brothers Inc., a family-owned and -operated regional food distributor. Green Life Farms will be the exclusive butterhead lettuce supplier to more than 5,000 Cheney Brothers customers.

Green Life Farms operates two hydroponic greenhouses in Florida, with 11 more greenhouses in construction or development. Using innovative hydroponic technology, Green Life Farms products are grown with non-GMO seeds, using efficient systems that require 90 percent less water than conventional farming and no pesticides. This addresses some of the country’s most significant needs and challenges around sustainability, safe food supply and use of natural resources.

Cheney Brothers provides food and other broad line products to independent restaurants, restaurant chains, hotels, country clubs, institutional groups and other foodservice operators. With annual revenues of more than $2 billion, the company is a leading distributor in its home market of Florida and over the last several years, has expanded its presence in Georgia, North Carolina and South Carolina. The company serves its markets with more than 50,000 products out of 13 state-of-the-art distribution facilities.

Green Life Farms leafy greens include butterhead lettuce, baby romaine, baby arugula, baby kale and farmer’s blend. The company also hydroponically grows basil, chives, cilantro, dill, mint, parsley, oregano, rosemary, sage, tarragon and thyme. In addition to food service distribution, Green Life Farms products are sold in more than 300 grocery stores, including some international locations, and to a major meal-kit delivery company under a long-term contract.

Green Life Farms’ process combines technology with agricultural best practices to grow premium leafy greens with a focus on sustainability, energy efficiency and environmental responsibility. Its flavorful produce is cultivated in nutrient-rich oxygenated water in greenhouses. Greens are harvested and packaged in a controlled environment to create the cleanest produce year-round and delivered locally to ensure premium freshness and a small carbon footprint.
