Meet the Team
Experienced and Dedicated Growers
Founder and Owner
Bruce Cobb is the founder and current owner of ARC Greenhouses. Bruce started his first greenhouse in 1984 growing hydroponic lettuce after graduating from the University of Delaware. He has been growing ever since. In 1990 he acquired a farm in Shiloh, NJ with 2 greenhouses. Since then the operation has expanded to 15 greenhouses. He still operates this farm. For over 34 years Bruce has been committed to growing the finest and highest quality greens and herbs. Currently he is either the second or third largest grower of microgreens.
In 1996 Bruce was approached by scientists at Rutgers to see if he would develop methods to grow plants to be used in pharmaceuticals. From then until 2012 Bruce was associated with five pharmaceutical projects where very specific protocols had to be developed and followed to demonstrate to governmental authorities that each crop was the same. This effort included developing computers and associated software for controlling the environment and feeding so plants could thrive.
Using the protocol driven methods has revolutionized the ability to grow culinary products. As part of the pharmaceutical project a growing facility was established Mount Dora, Florida in 2002. As a result Bruce learned about the significant benefits of growing in the Florida climate. Until July 2016 we only operated in rented facilities in Florida but in August of 2016 we purchased a 160,000 sq ft greenhouse to serve as our hub for growing fresh herbs and specialty greens.
