Now we Grow

 A major greenhouse producer is now growing in Mills River.

Agribusiness Henderson County recruited Lakeside Produce three years ago to the area.

Since then, it has begun production of mini cucumbers and tomatoes in a new greenhouse on Ladson Road.

A New Place to Call Home

Lakeside Produce is a family-run company with greenhouses and facilities spanning across North America, including in Leamington, Ontario; Taylor, Michigan; and Edinburg, Texas.

COVID-19 caused a slight delay in opening Lakeside’s first expansion into North Carolina — originally slated for Fall 2020 — but the company has finally entered into Phase 1 of its opening.

“Once we sat here, we did some analysis. We looked at the height of the elevations here. We looked at the water quality in the area. We looked at the supplies of agriculture supplies from fertilizers and chemicals and biologicals —we felt it was the right place and proximities to market,” said Chris Cervini, owner and CEO of Lakeside Produce.
