OceanGrown, Inc. is pleased to announce its partnership with our friends at Edible Gardens!
First, let’s talk about who and what Edible Gardens is.
It all started in 1908, when the Vande Vrede Family, owners of Edible Gardens, had begun to migrate to Belvidere, New Jersey from Holland. They brought with them the famous greenhouse technology started in Holland and continued using Dutch Hydroponic technology on their farms. The Dutch realized that you could not predict anything with traditional farming due to environmental impacts, insects and disease, all contributing to the loss of many crops. They started to use their hydroponic technology and Mother Nature to create a controlled, indoor environment for plants free from any pesticides, herbicides, residues or contaminants. This resulted in the Dutch becoming world famous farmers, whose produce is sought after all over the world and the birth of Edible Gardens!
Edible Garden’s mission today, is to provide consumers with the freshest locally grown produce, while using new and old clean, sustainable technology. They have taken regular store bought produce and kicked it up a notch. Their products consist of “living” produce you can find in your local supermarket. “Living” produce are plants that still have their root systems attached, giving you fresher, longer lasting and more nutritious ingredients at home! All of their produce is grown within miles of the supermarket it is in and is all NON-GMO and GSFI certified! You can find Edible Garden products in over 1,500 retailers throughout Connecticut, Delaware, Florida, Indiana, Illinois, Tennessee, Kentucky, Maine, Maryland, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, Pennsylvania, and Rhode Island. Their product line includes basil, butter head lettuce, chives, cilantro, dill, mint, oregano, parsley, rosemary, sage, and thyme.
Now that you know a little more about Edible Gardens, you can see how excited we are to be a part of such a great mission statement! OceanGrown, Inc. has teamed up with the head of operations at Edible Gardens and came up with a way to integrate OceanSolution into their feeding and watering regiment the most sustainable way! OceanSolution works wonders with Hydroponics due to the proper amount of trace minerals that all plants require, but are often deprived of with traditional nutrients. OceanSolution is helping Edible Gardens “living” produce standards rise with a boost in nutrition and taste, as well as strengthen the plants and allowing them to live even longer. OceanSolution is OMRI listed and 100% chemical free, making it a perfect match for Edible Gardens. We cannot wait to see what the future holds for our partnership!
