Nothing beats the taste of a fresh juicy tomato. Now, Great Northern Hydroponics delivers the fresh taste of home-grown tomatoes year-round. The company expanded its 50 acre facility by building a new 14 acre tomato greenhouse, the first of its kind to use high density light fixtures in Ontario. These fixtures create photosynthetic energy to sustain production. The combination of innovative greenhouse and light design is yielding improved production, efficiency, and high quality tomatoes. As a result, more Ontarians can enjoy tomatoes that are grown here at home 12 months of the year.
