How We Grow
Our seeds don’t come from labs, but regular seed companies. We even use seeds that are common for the hobby-gardener to buy for their backyard garden. We never use seeds that are genetically modified.
Although many people identify hydroponics as growing plants in water, it is also growing plants in sand, gravel or other growing mediums. We use coco-peat, an organic, natural fiber from coconut husks, to grow our plants. Growing this way uses 1/10 of the amount of water used in traditional farming.
We use large greenhouses to protect our plants from unfavorable weather. We are even able to start new plants in the winter months allowing us to harvest tomatoes and cucumbers 9 months of the year.
Although we are in a greenhouse, bad bugs can still get in. Instead of killing bad bugs with harmful chemicals and pesticides, we keep our customers safe by using beneficial bugs such as ladybugs to rid our farm of the bad bugs.
We have our own bee hives! They pollinate all the plants in our greenhouse. They have a big job!
Our dedication to food safety:
We meet all specifications for FSMA (Food Safety Modernization Act) compliance and are even GAP (USDA Good Agricultural Practices) certified voluntarily.
