Many have heard the term, “farm-to-table” or even “farm-to-market”. Although “farm-to-door” may not sound familiar at all. The Neighborhood Harvest is looking to change that.
The Neighborhood Harvest is a home delivery service based out of Suffolk, Virginia that offers organic herbs, greens, lettuces and more. Owners Thomas Vandiver, John Stein, and Eric Coble’s goal was to make hydroponic, non-GMO, pesticide-free greenhouse farmed produce available to the masses and delivered right to their doors. Basil was the main and most popular crop produced by The Neighborhood Harvest when it was founded. You can now find a wide range of greens available on their menu.
While The Neighborhood Harvest has a growing menu, you can be confident that you will find most classic lettuces including romaine, provincial, green leaf, and arugula to be available. Their irrigation chambers at the company’s 18,000-square-foot greenhouse facility is a climate-controlled environment that produces a wide variety of greens. With the produce being grown indoors, it’s harvested all year round.
