We grow our LETTUCE and more!
All Natural – Non-GMO – Fresh
Unprocessed – Pesticides free
Herbicide free – Chemical Free
At our aquaponic farm, we strive to create a natural ecosystem, in which we utilize our fish and the water they live in to supply food to the roots of our plants.
To accomplish this, we slowly grow our fish, by feeding them an all-natural, organic, vegetable-based diet. This food is the only outside product that is added to our ecosystem at any time. No artificial nutrition, chemicals, herbicides, or even pesticides ever enter into the growing process.
The water in our system is pumped through several natural and organic filters that remove all the solids and the natural occurring nutrients left in the water can now be used to help our vegetables grow.
So with the help of our fishy employees and their food we are able to grow all-natural, reliable, high-quality lettuce and other produce.
Our aquaponic farming methods use less than 10% of the water used in conventional growing. We grow our Non-GMO crops in a fraction of the time and space it takes to grow when using traditional farming methods.
We avoid long-distance transportation of food by growing fresh products for customers in our community. The big advantage for our customers is a high quality, locally grown, fresh product on their table.
