    Farming has been a part of this area since settlers first moved here. And for so long farming looked the same. You worked the land and produced a harvest. But places like Pure Green Farms is starting to change the way we look at farming. On the South Side of South Bend they have a 3.5 acre greenhouse facility raising greens for local restaurants and grocery stores. It’s a completely organic system and it doesn’t have to be shipped across the country, so it saves on fuel and freshness.
