What We Grow
Regarded as the newest innovation in salad mix production and a superior hydroponic lettuce, Salanova offers versatility, efficiency, and high value. Harvested as fully mature heads, the flavor and texture have more time to develop than traditional baby-leaf lettuces. From the unique structure of the core a multitude of uniformly-sized leaves develops that is harvestable with one simple cut. Salanova is more than 40% higher yielding, has better flavor and texture, and double the shelf life of traditional baby-leaf lettuce, making it an excellent option for field or indoor production.

SSGH understands the consumer concerns about food safety, as they should. Why is local produce so popular? Today’s consumer wants to know where their food comes from, how it was grown, how it was harvested and how long did it take to get from point A to point B; All legitimate concerns.
Reliable Logistics, Better Service
SSGH combines leading edge trace-ability with our own refrigerated transport to assure our produce is delivered on time, as fresh, flavorful and nutritious as the day it left our greenhouses. We control every step of the production, from growing to packaging and shipping.
As a family owned business, we know that the farm/agriculture sector grows smaller everyday, forcing today’s growers to produce more for an ever growing population. SSGH is a vertical CEA (Controlled Environment Agriculture) farm that grows and harvests thousands of loose leaf lettuce heads per week on a sustainable, smaller environmental footprint compared to our field grow competition. Additionally, we use significantly less water and nutrients to grow the same amount of produce.
