ABOUT: Verdegreens’ Farms was founded in 2016 and is one of the few urban farms in the greater Houston Area. Located on a small .98 acre lot in the northwest quadrant of the city (Acres Homes), Verdegreens employs state-of-the-art technologies to maximize agricultural output while using 1/10th of the water of a traditional farm, minimizing or eliminating fertilizer runoff, and using zero synthetic pesticides or herbicides. We are proud to produce a wide variety of edible greens, herbs, vegetables, and microgreens to service our clients. At Verdegreens, we believe that the future of food is local, sustainable, distributed, and delicious.
FUN FACT: Verdegreens is a play on the (redundant) words meaning “green greens,” reflecting both our heritage as growers in Spanglish speaking Texas, and our commitment to helping provide food to our community in the most ecological (green) way possible.
