FAQ

What does Gotham Greens grow and sell?

Gotham Greens grows and sells a wide variety of leafy greens and herbs, salad dressings and sauces. Please visit Our Greens page to learn more.

How does Gotham Greens grow and harvest its produce?

We grow our produce year-round in climate-controlled, hydroponic greenhouses. Simply put, hydroponics is a method for growing plants without soil. Gotham Greens’ greenhouses use a method known as nutrient film technique by which crops grow in trays and plants receive a constant stream of irrigation water enriched with a mineral nutrient solution, which the plants soak up through their root systems..

We conduct our entire operation under one roof, planting new crops, harvesting and packing daily. Growing in a greenhouse gives our expert farmers complete control of the growing environment, allowing Gotham Greens to create ideal conditions for our plants to thrive. Through our automated systems, we can ensure that temperature, humidity and light levels, as well as air composition, are exactly the right balance.

Where are Gotham Greens’ farms located?

Gotham Greens operates 500,000 square feet of hydroponic greenhouses across five U.S. states. Please visit Our Farms page to learn more.

Does Gotham Greens grow produce year-round?

Yes. It’s always sunny in a greenhouse. Since our farmers can control the environment inside our greenhouses, we’re able to grow year-round, no matter the weather.

How big are your farms?

Gotham Greens’ greenhouse farms range from 15,000 square feet to 100,000 square feet. In total acreage, we currently farm approximately 11 acres of greenhouse, which produces the crop yields equivalent to more than 400 acres of traditional open field agriculture! Please visit Our Farms page to learn more.

Is your produce organic?

While we are not “certified organic,” we believe our products are superior to many “certified organic” products. We grow using hydroponic methods and don’t use soil, so being certified organic (which focuses on soil health) is tricky. At Gotham Greens, we take a very holistic approach to growing our produce and introduce beneficial insects instead of using harmful chemical pesticides. Our leafy greens and herbs are pesticide and herbicide free.

Organic certification defines how food is produced in soil but does not necessarily address quality, safety, resource consumption or nutritional value – all issues that Gotham Greens addresses through our expert growers, high-quality products, comprehensive food safety program, freshness and year-round local production.

I’m vegan. Can I eat Gotham Greens products?

Yes. We offer several vegan products, including Vegan Pesto, Chimichurri, Vegan Lemon Basil Vinaigrette and Vegan Goddess Dressing & Dip. In addition, our leafy greens and herbs can be enjoyed by everyone. Please visit Our Greens page to learn more.

Are Gotham Greens products non-GMO?

Our leafy greens and herbs are non-GMO.

Are Gotham Greens products gluten free?

We do not use any gluten-based ingredients in our products.

What’s the best way to store Gotham Greens products?

Our lettuce, dressings and sauces should be refrigerated at all times for optimal freshness. We recommend storing basil on a counter away from direct sunlight (it typically lasts longer when stored at 50 degrees Fahrenheit).

Do I need to wash my greens?

All of our greens are pesticide-free and grown in a clean greenhouse without the use of soil. Our greens are unwashed. We’ve opted to not “prewash” our greens as this is typically done so using chlorine in commercial settings. Quality and shelf life is greatly improved when our greens remain unwashed. 

Many of our customers, including chefs, eat and serve our greens right out of the package, while others give them a quick rinse or whirl through a salad spinner. The choice is yours!
