About Fresh Water Greens

Fresh Water Greens is a hydroponic farming company in Sewell, NJ, and the company operates on land that has been owned and farmed by the same family since 1925. Our family's farming experience began with our great grandfather, who farmed lemons and grapes in Italy until he immigrated to the U.S. at age 16 and began farming livestock.

His livestock business was upheld through four generations, until the demands of the growing community required that the farming operations be moved to a more rural location. Despite this change, our family was determined to maintain our farming tradition and find a new way to utilize the land.

Our hydroponic greenhouse endeavor allows us to continue our relentless commitment to delivering the highest quality agricultural products. Hydroponic farming unites the most advanced growing technology with nature's best – allowing us to produce 365 days per year and harvest at peak ripeness for superior taste, texture, appearance and nutritional maturity.

In addition to great crops, hydroponic farming offers many benefits for our local community:

    • Energy Conservation
    • Energy Conservation

      Our hydroponic farm uses only the exact amount of water required for each plant to mature. As a result, our lettuce farm consumes 85% less water than typical lettuce farms. During the process of photosynthesis, our plants are naturally consuming CO2, further reducing our carbon footprint. And by exclusively selling our products locally, our petroleum consumption and transportation emissions are drastically reduced.

    • Environmental Protection
    • Environmental Protection

      The production of our crops requires no harmful pesticides or herbicides which are dangerous to our health and our environment. We use only sustainable, natural methods for controlling pests within our greenhouses. For example, beneficial insects such as ladybugs and wasps are released periodically to control populations of unwanted pests. By preserving open space, farms protect the habitats of local wildlife and other critical ecosystems. We respect and value the fertility of our land, so by utilizing greenhouse technology, we can produce crops all year long on a small parcel – maximizing efficiency and minimizing soil degradation and erosion.

    • Healthy Living

      Our Good Agricultural Practices help to ensure consumer and employee safety - two of our main goals. Most importantly, we produce clean, fresh vegetables that are unpolluted by chemicals and pesticides ensuring that our community has access to healthy, nutritious foods for years to come.

    • Community Building
    • Community Building

      We believe in strengthening our community first by supplying the local region with our high-quality agricultural products, and second by supporting other local businesses – using their goods and services whenever possible. Small businesses provide jobs for local residents, and farms/ open spaces help mitigate property taxes and government services, while improving the quality of living in townships large and small.
