Kietaviskes Greenhouses form the largest complex of greenhouses in the Baltic States. We use the latest technologies to maintain a microclimate reminiscent of Lithuanian summer, which allows us to bring fresh vegetables to your table all year round. We currently offer 17 varieties of tomatoes, cucumbers, and lettuce.
The history of Kietaviskes Greenhouses’ current facilities stretches back 30 years, when they were first set and seeded with roses to make use of the surplus heat generated by the nearby Elektrenai Power Plant. Back then, women from the surrounding cities and towns were employed to care for these roses.
Having purchased this infrastructure in 1987 and replacing roses with fresh vegetables, social responsibility and respect for our environment have been part of our company DNA since day one. We work to reduce our impact on the climate, run various initiatives to stop food waste, and organize educational field trips for both children and adults.
Sustainable and innovative
We care about people
Creating environmentally friendly packaging
Kietaviskes is visible from afar when it’s dark out. This is no mystery, as plenty of 1,000-watt lamps shine for 18-19 hours a day in the greenhouses to grow our plans. Known as light culture, this is the first modern lighting and microclimate support system in Lithuania, and we’ve been using it since 2017. Just as we can monitor our own vital processes on smartwatches, tomatoes and other vegetables rely on technology too – their growing process is fully automated.
Biofuel boiler plant
In 2017, we started using our own biofuel boiler plant that burns wood chips, logging waste, and coconut coir. We store the energy extracted in a special tank, and from there, distribute it to our greenhouses as needed. Almost half of Kietaviskes Greenhouses are already supplied with heat generated from our biofuel boiler plant.
We collect rainwater from our greenhouses’ rooftops and store it in a rainwater basin – from there, we use it to water our plants. Since watering pots are no longer the most efficient option, we use automatic sprinklers instead. Controlled digitally, they know exactly how much water each plant needs, which helps us save on this precious resource.
