Lēf Farms serves the grocery market with its fresh salad greens

Support.

The distance between our farm and your customer’s table is short, but it includes a vital step: The grocer. Without our retail partners, our lēf greens would never find their way onto the plates of hungry, discerning New England customers. So we like to support those grocers with as much energy as they deserve. That means helping them spread the lēf story. And here’s how they can do that.

Packaging

A unique blend of the freshest greens on the market deserves a package design to match. The lēf package, with its simple elegance, breaks out from the field of me-too brands. The classic black pillow bag with the window of cascading greens positions the lēf brand as the premium name among its competitors. And the lēf message of nearby freshness is told throughout.

And it’s not just the graphics that set the lēf bag apart. We’ve designed customized and patented perforations that maximize shelf life and enhance product quality from the time they leave our farm to the time they arrive on the shelves. No more of the same old square bag or clamshell.

We also offer the package in sizes to meet your needs, from three 5 oz. mix options – Smooth, Spice, Balance – to a bulk 3 lb. institute case.

Merchandising Tools

The reason lēf Farms greens are better than others comes down to the freshness we grow right here in New England. And there’s no better way to convey that to the smart shopper than with support tools to match. From overhead and dangler signage, to retractable displays, to floor graphics that point the way to our greens, we offer a full menu of merchandising to pique interest, encourage interaction, and get the lēf message across in a way that will differentiate us. And that all points to better sales for you that can leave the traditional bagged and clamshell greens in the rear view mirror.

Greens

Did you know that nearly 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.
