About Us

We envision Daniel's Garden as a “green technology” company. By “green,” we mean that energy and resource efficiency is inherent in the design and operations of our production system, and that the organization itself is scaled to such a size and scope that is appropriate for efficiency and success. Our desire is to create innovation by merging technological approaches, making production a more efficient process for the benefit of producers and consumers alike. Our team consists of three top professionals from diverse agricultural, entrepreneurial, technical, and corporate backgrounds, and our collective experience, industry connections, and creative synergy will enable us to accomplish our goals.
