It places the well-being of our planet’s future at the forefront of all business decisions.

It’s why we grow in high tech greenhouses and produce more on less arable land. It’s why we use less water, less pesticides and less energy. It’s why we feed our clean CO2 emissions to our crops and capture waste heat for reuse.

It’s why we are constantly exploring innovative ideas in sustainable packaging. Big Marble First is our promise to future generations to put what matters most before convenience and profit.

Sustainable Packaging

Packing Big Marble Farms premium produce in protective packaging increases its shelf life and reduces food waste. Those benefits, combined with sustainably sourced, compostable and recyclable packaging materials, drive our Big Marble First packaging program.

Big Marble Farms is continuously investing in and developing sustainable and environmentally friendly packaging for our products, our customers, and our planet.
