"Lettuce Grow is honored to rank in the top 200 on this year’s Inc. 5000 list.

"We believe that not only is there an urgent need to transition to a more sustainable food system, we can do so with joy and wonder: by growing our own food. Today’s recognition is testament to the fact that others feel the same way."

Among the top 500, the average median three-year revenue growth rate soared to 2,144 percent. Together, those companies added more than 68,394 jobs over the past three years.
