Did you Know There’s a Place in Michigan Growing Lettuce – in January?!
Shopping at the local farmer’s markets for fresh produce is one of my favorite parts of summer. In the cold, dark days of winter, I miss the crisp, fresh vegetables, so I was thrilled to learn that there’s still a way to buy local AND farm fresh lettuce in the middle of the winter!
Revolution Farms is an indoor greenhouse in Caledonia that brings incredibly fresh, locally grown vegetables to West Michigan grocery stores. The farm uses natural light plus state-of-the-art LED grow lights, and automatically adjusts temperature, wind, shade, humidity and carbon dioxide for the best-tasting lettuce around.
This creates the perfect indoor environment where fresh lettuce can thrive all year long – even in Michigan.
Revolution Farms wants to see more local food on our tables and we know you do, too.

Better Than Organic? Yes! Revolution Farms Grows the BEST Lettuce
So how is Revolution Farms better than organic? Organic just means a food is grown a certain way. But Revolution Farms makes sure their lettuce is given the royal treatment all the way to the grocery store.
Grown in a perfectly balanced ecosystem, these fresh greens are picked at peak, immediately packaged on-site and delivered in two days or less to local stores like D&W, Family Fare and Forest Hills Foods. This crispy lettuce has more nutrients than other lettuce that has to travel farther to get to the store.
