Boston Lettuce is a member of the butterleaf lettuce family, known for its tender texture and sweet flavour. Rich in vitamins K, B, C and A, organic Boston lettuce is also an excellent source of sodium, calcium, potassium and magnesium. As a salad, it goes well with a wide variety of toppings and dressings, and makes a great addition to burgers and wraps. No need to water this plant, just tear off what you need and store the rest in the fridge.
Ingredients: no chemicals, no GMOs, just organically grown Boston lettuce.
Slegers Living Greens is a family owned greenhouse operation located at the edge of Strathroy, 20 minutes west of London, Ontario. They have been producing greens since 1987, and became organically certified in 2004, after many years of interest in organics and several growing trials to find organic techniques that were effective and compatable with their growing system. They believe in growing organically because it is healthier for consumers to eat, better for the environment and that it provides a healthy workplace for staff and family to work and live in.
The majority of Slegers greens are sold to wholesalers that are within a two hour drive from their farm; London, Toronto and surrounding cities and communities. They also sell their greens right at their farm gate retail store for members in the local community. Since local is important to Slegers, they are proud to be members of Local Food Plus (LFP).
Slegers chooses to grow their greens with the roots attached because they want you to get the freshest, raw food available with living enzymes that promote good digestive health.
