We strive to produce wholesome foods in an ecologically sustainable system — blending nature with technology to grow you the freshest, most delicious and nutritious food possible.
Growing facilities include:
- RainFresh Bio-Integrated Greenhouse
- Passive Solar Greenhouse
- Aquaculture pond
- Biolntensive field crops
BioIntensive Field Crops — raised beds to grow fresh herbs, specialty vegetables and berries. We use sustainable agricultural practices that include organic fertilizers, biocontrols, crop rotation, pastures and cover crops for organic matter production to grow wholesome foods in a responsible manner.
Green Growing practices regenerate the soil and preserve natural resources. Our crops are grown using organic fertilizers and biological controls. Water and nutrients are used efficiently. We collect rainwater and grow year-round greenhouse crops using aquaponics. Organic matter is recycled by vermicomposting where red worms not only provide superior, nutrient-rich growing media but also serve as food for the poultry and fish production.
