On Aug. 24, Taylor Farms announced it has entered the greenhouse growing market with an investment in Pure Green Farms.
This expansion into greenhouse-grown fresh offerings will complement Taylor Farms’ existing 122,200-crop-acre field grown program and 16 salad producing facilities across North America.
