Our Facility Over the years Sunrise Greenhouses has been recognized as one of the foremost leaders in greenhouse innovation. From development and implementation of greenhouse equipment including automatic booms, table stacking, packaging equipment and energy efďŹ cient technology, few other greenhouses rival our technology. A 300 foot long underground basement captures more than 10 million liters of rainfall per year for irrigation. Several irrigation units with a combination of 20 separate irrigation solution tanks allow us to produce our exclusive range of products in a fully recycled irrigation system so no nutrients or chemicals are released into the environment. This is achieved by the use of mobile ebb and ood benches that allow us to sub-irrigate our crops keeping the plants dry and preventing potential infection by pathogens. The mobile bench system is also extremely efďŹ cient allowing us to automate all phases of the production. These investments come with the belief that superior systems lead to high quality products.


Our facility

is heated by two 500 HP European high efficiency boilers each outfitted with condensers and C02 scrubbers. Each department contains HID lighting, double energy curtains and humidity control. Together with Koppert Biological Control Systems we are working to reduce our chemical dependency by using natural controls to fight pests and pathogens to create a greener future. Lastly, Sunrise is on the constant path to becoming Carbon Neutral by utilizing the most energy efficient technology available. In 2010 and 2011 10 KWH PV solar collectors were installed and several other projects are in the works for the coming year! We aim to keep our status from TOGA (The Ontario Greenhouse Alliance) as the having the lowest carbon footprint per square meter of production not for our benefit but for our earth’s as it is the one thing every person in this world has common! [3]




Along with local grape growers and wine makers Sunrise is actively involved in bringing old Italian world wine techniques to the heart of our wine region Niagara to create one of the most treasured wines. Great care goes into producing this Amarone style wine using expertly grown grapes and placing them in our precision controlled climate until the perfect dryness is reached! ~

IndoorLiving LIVING DÉCOR®

Straight from our Campanula breeders wife Anett Madsen to you:

“At first I could hardly believe my ears when a good friend told me that while visiting Paris in September, she had seen that Hermès had opened a florist’s shop in their newly-opened department store at 17 Rue de Sèvres, 75006 Paris – so I booked a ticket to Paris to see for myself the flowers in the context of one of the world’s strongest luxury brands.” “It is naturally surprising to see that such a big and strong luxury brand is using our products to draw customers into their store, and that they dare to ask a price which is far higher than we see elsewhere. Perhaps there is something we have overlooked.....”
