Atlas Farm Reduces Winter Crop Cycle by Over 25% for Lettuce and Inhibits Downy Mildew Using LEDs
Atlas Farm is a certified organic farm in South Deerfield, MA. Gideon Porth founded Atlas Farm in 2003 to help connect people to their food and be a model for sustainable agricultural practices. The 95-acre farm uses its acre of greenhouse space to propagate lettuce, tomatoes, bok choy, herbs, and several specialty crops year-round, and grow lettuce throughout the winter. Most of the crops grown on Atlas Farm start their lives in one of the farm’s greenhouse bays.
