Originally the home of Jackson and Perkins, (one of the largest and best-known horticultural firms in the United States and inventors of the modern-day Rose flower), The Newark Greenhouse consists of 36 acres of land, of which 9 acres are solely dedicated to indoor growing space. It includes;

 

  • 340,000 square feet of heated indoor growing space
  • 80,000 square feet of warehouse, refrigerated storage, soil mixing, potting, and production areas
  • Ebb and Flow Irrigation with reuse filtration, known for its simplicity and reliability

 

The Newark Greenhouse was designed to operate as an economically feasible major growing and shipping facility, which can accommodate a large grower throughout all seasons of the year. Currently, Amos Zittel and Son’s, Inc. occupy roughly 150,000 square feet of greenhouse, office and production areas. The Zittle family is expert in the growing industry, with over 118 years of history and experience producing the healthiest and most vibrant flowers, plants and vegetables in New York. With such deep, longstanding roots in the community, The Newark Greenhouse provides unique historic value to New York.

Our greenhouse facilities use a combination of technologies that aim to promote sustainability and efficiency, while allowing a wide variety of crops to grow in our facility. This includes shade cloth and energy curtains that reduce night heating by up to 50%, and help lower air temperatures during the summertime by as much as 10ºF.

 

Our facilities also use a combination of Ebb and Flow Bench Irrigation with water reuse filtration and Overhead Irrigation. These systems, known for their simplicity and reliability, allow for a vast variety in the types of crops that can be grown within our facility by creating flexibility in the amount of water used per crop type. Moreover, the efficiency created by these systems minimizes water use and helps make our facilities more environmentally friendly.
