Our company was inspired by the care and passion of farmers in and around the hilltop villages of Italy, as depicted in this painting by renowned artist Shirley Chapman.
It was commissioned to commemorate our 25th anniversary, and every part of the picture tells a bit of our story: from the brightness of good days, along with some of the dark clouds every farmer inevitably faces. That sense of perseverance even in the face of uncertainty. Good people, working the land as best they know how.
Almost 35 years ago, we took the personal care and devotion of those village farmers and melded it with modern/high-tech greenhouse growing methods. In fact, we pioneered Controlled Environment Agriculture in North America, and became a leader in the produce industry. Now we’re applying all of our expertise and knowledge of greenhouse growing to the flourishing cannabis and health and wellness markets.
It’s a natural extension of what we’ve always done – contributed to the wellbeing of people, while respecting the planet. Not unlike the farmers who originally inspired us. It took a village to build our company into what it is today, and what it is yet to become tomorrow. And for that, we’ve very grateful.
