Little Leaf Farms, a company committed to sustainably grown food through controlled environment agriculture, launched its newest lettuce variety, Sweet Baby Butter Leaf. Grown in Little Leaf Farms' state-of-the-art hydroponic greenhouse producing fresh lettuce year-round, Sweet Baby Butter Leaf lettuce features a sweet flavor and a tender yet crispy texture.
The new variety follows in the footsteps of all leafy green offerings from Little Leaf Farms – free of pesticides, herbicides and fungicides and nurtured in an ecosystem that harnesses sunlight and fresh rainwater for sustainable production. Unlike field-grown leafy greens, Little Leaf Farms' leafy greens are hands-free from seeding to harvesting to packaging, which means no washing required. Little Leaf Farms lettuce is harvested daily and delivered from greenhouse to grocery store in just 24 hours.
The new Sweet Baby Butter Leaf lettuce is also packaged more sustainably thanks to its unique new peel and reseal design, which is fully recyclable and features 30% less plastic than previous Little Leaf Farms' product packaging. The new reduced-plastics packaging is also currently rolling out across other Little Leaf Farms varieties and is expected to be completed by September.
Sweet Baby Butter Leaf is available in a 4oz package and is currently available at retailers throughout New England with additional distribution planned for later this year throughout the Northeast.
