Little Leaf Farms



Little Leaf Farms

Little Leaf Farms is home to one of the most technologically-advanced, lettuce growing greenhouses in the world, providing some of the freshest baby lettuce available in New England to UMass.

Focusing on both water and energy conservation, Little Leaf’s greenhouse uses natural gas-powered heating, natural sunlight, and 100% captured rainwater. Their commitment to sustainability directly aligns with our efforts to reduce our carbon footprint and natural resource waste.

Paul Sellew and Tim Cunniff began their 10-acre greenhouse in Fall of 2015 together, interested in revolutionizing the way lettuce is grown and delivered. They strive to attain sustainable development, which is often defined as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
