Fresh lettuce, grown hydroponically by Truly Northern Farms.
"In April 2017, Stephane and Erin received one of the first Canadian-made modular farms and launched Smart Greens Sudbury with the intent to change how food is grown in Northern Ontario. With this ambitious goal in mind, they dove into the business of growing leafy greens indoors full-time and quickly integrated into the local food movement by actively participating in farmers markets and events that promoted local food production.
After establishing a strong market for their baby kale and microgreens, Stephane and Erin teamed up with local farmer Jeremy Gillanders to launch Truly Northern with a new facility in Opasatika, Ontario. Originally constructed as a large scale indoor mushroom farm, the facility in Opasatika has been converted to grow leafy greens and herbs using LEDs and modern hydroponic techniques.
Our vision is simple. We believe that fresh healthy food should be grown and available locally across our province regardless of the season."
