Lettuce

Experience fresh and crispy lettuce varieties like crunchy romaine, smooth butterhead, or delicate lollo rossa. Perfect for refreshing salads, these crops are in high demand by consumers, grocers, and chefs.

Lettuces can be grown as full heads or mini-heads, and sold by the head or by weight. Freight Farmers can harvest 500 full heads or 1,000 mini-heads a week.

Herbs

Enhance the flavor of any dish with fragrant herbs like sweet basil, peppery oregano, or fresh mint. Most of these crops typically grow in warm-weather climates, so year-round availability is important for at-home cooks and professional chefs looking to add sophistication to their dishes.

Experimental crops

While the LGM™ is optimized and designed for the growth of leafy greens, our Freight Farmers have had success growing a variety of root vegetables and flowers. These crops are in the research and development phase so we do not currently have yield data available.

 

Flowers
