Village Farms is one of the largest producers of premium quality greenhouse tomatoes, bell peppers and cucumbers in North America. Village Farms vegetables are grown hydroponically (without the use of soil) in a glass enclosed high technology environment using sophisticated computer systems to control irrigation, fertilizers, carbon dioxide, light, temperature, ventilation, humidity and other climatic factors. Village Farms’ greenhouse vegetables are produced by plants that have been selected for their taste, quality and other characteristics and are not genetically modified.
The Company operates an industry leading sales, distribution and marketing organization. In particular, the Company’s strategy focuses on forging strong customer relationships by servicing retailers on a year-round basis, and maintaining the highest standards of food safety. Village Farms owns and operates seven greenhouse facilities in British Columbia and Texas. These regions support a vibrant greenhouse industry due to their superior growing conditions, in terms of light and temperature, when compared to other regions of North America. In addition, Village Farms markets, provides technical support, and logistics services for over 200 acres of greenhouse production throughout the US, Canada, and Mexico.
Our Mission is to lead the industry as the premier grower and marketer of branded, premium quality, greenhouse-grown fresh produce in North America. We constantly strive to exceed our customers’ expectations through unparalleled commitment to quality produce and sustainable growing practices.
