We are currently harvesting organic and conventional romaine lettuce and romaine hearts in Coachella Valley, CA in Riverside County, which is NOT the growing region associated with the current Romaine Alert.


Leaf Lettuce

Leaf lettuce is a year-round favorite for its versatility and nutritious flavor and texture.  There are several varieties of leaf lettuce, which consist of large, loosely packed leaves joined at a stem. Ocean Mist Farms grows red and green leaf lettuce and the tender butter lettuce. Often used in tossed salads, sandwiches and as wraps, leaf lettuce continues to be a fresh favorite in the produce aisle.
