Arugula is peppery, tender, and slightly bitter providing the perfect counterpoint for savory foods such as meats, cheeses, and nuts. These greens are washed and ready-to-eat straight out of the box.
Element Farms is a tech-driven grower of produce located in Lafayette, NJ. These hydroponic greens are locally grown, pesticide-free, and ultra fresh: it is delivered from the farm to us in less 24 hours before we ship it to you. These greens are grown all year round in perfect conditions using greenhouses equipped with cutting edge technology:
Seeding: They kick off the growing cycle by sowing their seeds in a proprietary potting mix & irrigating them with ultrapure water.
Germinating: Seeds are set in their specialized germination chamber to sprout in perfectly calibrated temperature and humidity levels.
Planting: Sprouts are "planted" in large ponds of ultra-filtered, recirculating water that's full of the nutrients they need and none of the stuff they don't.
Growing: Their greens soak up the sun from above and nutrients from below as they gently float from one end to the other of their custom-build, hydroponic ponds.
Harvesting: Skilled harvesters use specialized machinery to harvest their baby greens at the perfect "fork-sized" height.
Packing: Greens are hand packed into containers, labeled, and stacked in cases to be shipped out within 24 hours.
