Production

We grow all of our food hydroponically. We also committed to using as little water as possible and renewable solar energy during production.  There are a number of ways to accomplish these goals.

Indoor Hydroponics Farming

In this case, the produce is grown indoors in water without soil using a re-circulating hydroponic system. Everything the plants need are provided through light, water and nutrients.

Because the system is indoors, no pesticides, herbicides or insecticides need to be used. Lights are optimized for leafy green production or fruit/flower production.  All materials used are food-grade NSF-certified materials.

Outdoor Hydroponics Farming

The simplest and most cost effective approach is use a non-circulating hydroponic system to grow plants. This approach’s primary advantage is that it requires no energy other than from the sun and is a variant of a floating raft water culture method. Research has shown that it is effective at growing leafy vegetables, herbs, and flowers. The plant roots extend into the solution even as the reservoir level drops. Some roots remain in the water while part of the root mass resides in the super-humid buffer region between the water level and the foam support. This method allows plants to grow without pumps and aeration units.
