The Villages Grown Fresh Produce


Wanting to supply The Villages, Florida with the best, freshest produce possible The Village Grown was built on a 45-acre site in the heart of The Villages.  A hyperlocal system designed with the freshest, most nutritious and most locally sourced food possible.  To do this they use a vertical hydroponics, a process that uses vertically stacked towers to plant and grow more crops on less land. Hydroponics is a style of growing that does not use soil.

The Villages Grown grows its produce with peak nutrition in mind, striving to get food out to the community within two to 48 hours of harvest so people reap the highest vitamin and nutrient benefits.  Many local grocery stores have added The Village Grown to their produce section and now has a retail store located at the new Sawgrass Grove which is a quickly growing retail, dining and entertainment hub located in the southern part of The Villages.

The Village Grown has partnerships with a network of 17 local farms and 26 local artisans that supplement their harvests with seasonal crops and locally made agricultural products like honey, olive oil and tea.  The Villages Grown is growing 74 unique crops including lettuce, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and microgreens, young vegetable greens picked when the first leaves are developed.
