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 clamshell package, with its simple elegance, breaks out from the field of me-too brands. Our sophisticated clear clamshell is designed to show off our delicious greens, while protecting them and dramatically improving shelf life. All of which positions lēf Farms as the premium name in baby greens.

Our sturdy clamshell packaging not only protects our delicate greens as they make their way to the homes of salad lovers all across New England, but they provide consumers with more convenience. They stack easily inside any refrigerator, and their re-sealable closure helps reduce wilting and food waste by keeping the greens as fresh as when they first came home from the store.

We also offer the package in sizes to meet your needs, from three 4 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.

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.
