Local Leaf Farms is committed to growing better food locally and sustainably to support healthier communities. We do this because where your food comes from matters.
Better: Vertical farming allows us to grow in a controlled, indoor environment yielding consistent produce with improved taste, superior food safety and optimal freshness – delivered to stores within hours of being harvested.
Local: We grow in each community to shorten the distance (and the carbon emissions from transportation) from seed to shelf. We provide stores with the right mix of produce based on individual store demand, shipped directly when it’s needed. At the same time, it allows people to see and visit their neighbourhood farm, managed by their own neighbours.
Sustainable: We bring a sustainable solution to growing food that reduces the environmental impact while increasing yield per area. We foster sustainability within our business operations and throughout the food supply chain.
Support healthier communities: Beyond helping communities feed themselves year-round with fresh, sustainable food, we support local, social causes that matter most. This includes supporting community initiatives and dedicating a portion of our produce to at-need stakeholders and charities identified in conjunction with local municipal leaders. In addition to our year-round production directed to local stakeholders, our Barrie, Ontario location has provided its 20,000 square foot backyard to be used as an outdoor community garden. This is for identified residents to grow their own food and learn from our agronomist and team in a collaborative environment.
