About our farm

EFC Farms started in October 2021 when it acquired the assets of the former farm and has continued operating on Hendry Creek Drive in Fort Myers. The farm is managed by Liz Jager and her husband, Mick Jager.

We are driven to continuously learn and be innovative while eliminating waste in all our processes. We will continue to improve on and educate others about the aquaponic growing systems with all-natural processes. We will enhance the product offering of our current artisan lettuce produce with other fruits and vegetables all grown in our aquaponic system.

With our motto of “one Earth … our Family … for the Community”, we are driven to serve our community through the selling of our products to local restaurants and the public at our market and donating produce for the needy while treating our employees and associates as a family to improve our only Earth through sustainable processes and eliminating waste.

Our mission at EFC Farms is simple. We want to provide the freshest, locally grown produce in southwest Florida using all-natural organic growing techniques.

We never use chemical pesticides or herbicides – ever.

Our goal is to set the standard for what fresh food is and show our customers how produce is better when grown locally. Furthermore, we pride ourselves on no waste. Whatever produce we harvest that is not sold is donated to local food charities and everything we harvest that is not sellable, we donate to local turtle sanctuaries. Everything else is composted and re-used elsewhere on our farm.

The entire EFC Farms Team believes that taking pride in our work and what we produce makes for better products and a better environment.
