LAKESIDE IS COMMITTED TO SUSTAINABLE FARMING
We don't just grow our products in our community, we've lived here for nearly a century. That's why we take our impact on our environment seriously.
In 2018 alone, Lakeside lowered its CO2 emissions by more than 20,000 tons - that’s like using 2,300,000 less gallons of gasoline!
Natural Pollination Using Bees
Lakeside believes in pollinating our crops using natural methods. That's why we use bees in our greenhouses. This has a number of advantages: not only are bumblebees quick workers, but they can improve the quality and yield of crops!
Water is a precious commodity when growing fresh produce, which is why we collect the runoff water from our crops. It's passed through a rigorous re-purifying process and fed nutrients so that it can be recycled for use in future crops.
Lakeside's main facility generates its own electricity through the use of a cogeneration power station. Not only is our energy created via natural gas, but the heat runoff is pumped back into our facilities to reduce wastage.
