About Certified Greenhouse Farmers
The mission of Certified Greenhouse Farmers is to define and enforce the integrity of the greenhouse process to assure consumers that our products are grown in accordance with quality, safety and environmental performance standards.
Our grower members represent the next generation of farming. Greenhouse farming provides the opportunity for consistent year-round produce and this production system has moved from a niche business to supplying more than 50 percent of the fresh tomatoes sold at supermarkets. Greenhouse farmers also enjoy increased demand for other greenhouse-grown vegetables including peppers and cucumbers.
Certified Greenhouse Farmers seeks an enforceable definition for greenhouse-grown vegetables to ensure that when a consumer wishes to buy greenhouse-grown vegetables, he or she has the assurance that the produce labeled greenhouse is, in fact, produced in a defined greenhouse under the highest standards for quality, safety and environmental performance.
