“With a wide variety of colors, textures, and flavors, our cut leafy greens make a hearty salad or healthy topping for sandwiches and burgers,” Peppe adds. “Our cut blends are washed and ready-to-eat and our whole head lettuce is offered with either root on or off—living and nonliving.”

The benefits of this line should not be understated. The lettuce is hydroponically grown in a protected environment without GMOs, pesticides, or herbicides. Available in a variety of clamshell formats, Backyard Farms Leafy Greens bring a consistently fresh supply year-round.
