A hub of freshness
Located in the heart of our community, this innovative growing complex encompasses controlled-environment agriculture greenhouses, a state-of-the-art processing facility and delivery fleet. Serving as the hub, this complex ensures the quality, safety, and timely delivery of nutrient-dense produce grown in our greenhouses and on our partner farms.
Healthy plants. Healthy people.
The Villages Grown farm sits on 45 acres right in The Villages’ own backyard. Starting with 5 acres in phase 1, these cutting-edge greenhouses will employ advanced hydroponic and aeroponic technologies to consistently yield 60+ varieties. Our innovative growing techniques and standards surpass organic, and are designed to enhance phytochemicals, nutrients and vitamins for optimal plant health… when plants are healthier, they can make people healthier.
Supporting local farms that share the same passion and standards is important to our food system. By partnering with local family farms and artisans we can offer more variety of just-picked produce and help residents get to know exactly where their food comes from and who grows it. It’s all part of helping the community reconnect with their food.
Above & beyond
We never settle, especially when it comes to food safety. Our facility exceeds national and international organic growing standards and the Food Safety Modernization Act. Pushing well ahead of the curve, our standards limit contamination and eliminate chemicals to deliver clean produce, the way nature intended.
Preserving what's precious
Our sustainable and innovative practices ensure we consistently deliver the best products while taking great care to preserve natural resources for future generations. Our greenhouses are pesticide-free, utilize less land, and employ various resource-monitoring systems and processes. A reduced carbon footprint is the result of this hyper-local approach.
