Corner Stalk Farm offers Boston area consumers fresh, locally grown leafy greens all year round. We grow our produce in recycled shipping containers which creates an extremely energy and water efficient environment. A year round growing season and dense planting allows maximum productivity from a dense urban footprint. 


How It Works

 

Controlled Environment

 

We specialize in using Controlled Environment Agriculture (CEA). LED lighting, temperature control and automatic water flow within insulated shipping containers creates the ideal environment that leafy greens need.  A year round growing season and dense planting allow maximum productivity from a dense urban footprint in East Boston. When there's a blizzard or heat wave, we're still harvesting delicious leafy greens.

 

Vertical Hydroponic Farming

 

Hydroponics is a soil-less growing method that allows the cultivation of plants using recirculated water with optimum nutrient inputs.  Compared to the harmful chemical and grey water runoff created by industrial farming and urban pollution, we have no runoff and use no pesticides or harmful chemicals. To top it off, we leverage vertical growing technology to grow 20 plants per square foot of farm space per month.

 



Heirloom Lettuces

 

We grow more than twenty varieties of lettuces chosen for color, texture, and taste. Freshly harvested, our locally grown lettuces are packaged as a mix for Boston area consumers. Additionally, Corner Stalk Farm grows a variety of herbs and other leafy greens including: basil, arugula, swiss chard, kale, mint, and mustard greens.
