Darrell Joseph is a passionate cook, farmer and founder of Bella Verdi Farms (Italian words meaning “beautiful greens”). Leaving employment in the high-tech world behind to pursue his muse, Darrell grows herbs, micro greens and lettuce crops hydroponically in a controlled greenhouse environment using organic practices with an emphasis on holistic plant culture.
Bella Verdi products are grown in a 13,000 sq. ft. greenhouse located just outside of Austin in Dripping Springs where they focus on high quality, all natural (non-genetically altered) seeds without the use of pesticides and with pure, filtered captured rainwater. Bella Verdi greens are cut daily, packaged on site and delivered within 48 hours of harvest, insuring the freshest, best-tasting micro greens, herbs and lettuces available year ’round.
Bella Verdi Farms was the first grower in the U.S. to be certified in PRO*ACT’s Greener Fields Together initiative. Visit the Bella Verde Farm is this video: http://www.bellaverdifarms.com/klru_movie.html
