Fine specialty produce for over 35 years!
Lakeville Specialty Produce Company, Inc. was founded in 1976 as AgrowNautics, Inc., and pioneered in the early development of commercial-scale controlled environment growing systems and techniques.
The company's original hydroponic production facility in Salisbury, Connecticut, was followed by a second and larger facility in Hopewell Junction, New York, and finally, in 1985, by the company's present facility in Washingtonville, Pennsylvania.
From modest beginnings with Bibb lettuce and salad spinach marketed directly to local retail outlets, Lakeville's product line has evolved over the years to include a wide variety of high-end specialty salad greens, distributed nationwide through wholesale and retail channels to fine restaurants and upscale vendors of fresh produce from coast to coast.
Lakeville is employee-owned and managed, and consequently benefits from constant bottom-up innovation, from a laser focus on product quality, and from extraordinary employee loyalty and longevity. In a very real sense Lakeville is a family business.
With the benefit of extensive technological and horticultural expertise derived from a long production history (more than twice as long as its oldest competitor), Lakeville has earned a well-deserved reputation as the most consistent and dependable producer of top-quality hydroponic specialty produce in the country.
