NatureFresh™ Farms Kicks Off 2018 Growing Season With New Organic Sweet Bell and Mini Sweet Peppers
LEAMINGTON, ON - NatureFresh™ Farms has started full production for the 2018 season at its Leamington, ON, greenhouses, and it has a few new things in store. In addition to traditional favorites like the company’s greenhouse-grown peppers, tomatoes, and cucumbers, it is now introducing organic sweet bell and mini sweet peppers to its portfolio.
“By increasing the variety of commodities grown at our farm, NatureFresh is further defining itself as a leader within the fresh produce industry,” commented Retail Account/Procurement Manager Niels Klapwijk. “This form of growth for the company is very exciting.”
Now adding organic sweet mini peppers for North American consumers to its previous options of organic sweet bell peppers, the company said in a press release that the 2018 season is especially exciting for bell pepper growing because of this recent expansion of organically-grown offerings.

Additionally, the popular TOMZ® Snacking Tomato line will be grown in both Ontario and Ohio greenhouses using the same growing processes and methods at both facilities. This is part of the company’s commitment to providing the same exceptional flavor and great quality that consumers expect from TOMZ grown in both locations.
Sold in vibrant, convenient packaging, which will be easy to spot as products hit store shelves this season, the TOMZ Snacking Tomato line includes:
- The newly-introduced Tomberry® Tomatoes
- Red Grape
- Orange Grape
- Yellow Grape
- Red Cherry
A recent expansion also boosted production of NatureFresh Farms high-quality, consistently fresh Long English and Mini Cucumbers, now available year-round.
Produce grown in NatureFresh Farms Ontario greenhouses will consistently be shipped to North American retailers starting in April, 2018.
