Many know lēf as a farm that grows the best local greens around, but we’re so much more than that. Here at the farm we’re passionate about serving the community in which we work, live, and grow. We help by giving our time, energy, and resources to support local organizations. And we strive to go beyond our partners’ expectation by working hard with our community partners to create dialogue around food insecurities and health improvements within our communities.t
NH Food Bank
Working Together We Can Solve Hunger in the Granite State
lēf Farms is proud to be a partner and to support the NH Food Bank’s mission to fight food insecurity in the Granite State. We donate our time, energy as well as our greens to support NH Food Bank programs. These events and programs have a special place in our heart; we know every dollar donated creates two meals for a NH resident in need. The Steel Chef competition, mobile food pantry, and Recipe for Success: Culinary Job Training Program are just a few of the many programs we’re excited to support. Last year alone, we provided enough greens to help the Food Bank give everyone in Concord, Manchester, Salem, and Nashua a meal…every day of the year.

AMERICAN CANCER SOCIETY- MAKING STRIDES AGAINST BREAST CANCER
What Unites Us, Ignites US
The Making Strides against Breast Cancer walks unite our community behind the American Cancer Society’s efforts to save lives from breast cancer. And lēf Farms is proud to provide some our time, energy and healthy salads along the way.
Did you know that more than 95% of the greens most people eat come all the way from California, Arizona and Mexico? That’s not exactly nearby, nor is it a recipe for freshness. Even many so-called “local” greens are really West Coast-grown — they just get new packaging slapped on at an East Coast repacking operation. After they’ve taken a long ride in the back of a shipping truck.
We think greens need to be grown where they’ll be eaten, so they hit your plate at the peak of freshness. That’s why all lēf greens are hydroponically grown right here in the heart of New England. They’ll get to you within 24 quick hours of being harvested. And they’ll change your perception of just how fresh, healthy and flavorful local greens can actually be.
