This offering is part of a broader effort by Living Greens Farm to expand its lineup of the freshest, highest quality, locally, air-grown and pesticide-free products. Living Greens Farm works with Robinson Fresh, an Eden Prairie, MN based provider who specializes in sourcing and transporting fresh produce for consumers around the world.
