Today, we offer a variety "ready-to-grow"​ and "ready-to-eat"​ products which are sold in thousands of locations including Whole Foods, Costco, Nordstrom, The Home Depot, Target, World Market, Petco, Loblaw, Wegman's, Fresh Market, Safeway, Kroger, Urban Outfitters, Sam's Club, Crate & Barrel and many other fine retail locations nationwide.
