2019 Comes to a Close
We wanted to reach out and thank everyone who has supported us this year. Outside the greenhouse and in! Aquaponics is an amazing technology that offers healthy produce, a self-sustaining form of growing that's good for the environment, and the greenhouse is a controlled environment that keeps soil-borne diseases out of our food. Local, fresh, and safe!
We made the difficult decision to close down for a few months this winter to modify things in our greenhouse. With an aquaponics system you are limited in how much produce you can grow by how many fish you raise in your system. You are limited in how many fish you can raise by how big your fish tanks are, as you can safely grow only so many pounds of fish per gallon of water. Due to the size constraints of our aquaponics system, we are going to add hydroponics growing in our greenhouse, as well. We're super excited, because this means we'll be able to increase our volume and offer you more at each of our markets and events! Everything will still be grown without soil, following organic practices and meeting the highest quality standards, inside an enclosed, controlled environment. You will never have to worry about a soil-borne disease with our produce. We implement bio-security processes so everything stays clean, and have been trained in Good Agricultural Practices for harvesting our produce safely.
We're hoping to have modifications complete and the system back up and running late February to early March, with produce available in April, beginning with lettuce and microgreens. I will post events and markets on our Events page, as well as send out a blog post to keep you up to date. If you have any connections at a co-op or store that you think would like our produce, let me know. I'm happy to talk with them about our system, what we offer and what's going on in our greenhouse.
Thanks again for your support and encouragement! They mean more than words can possibly say!
Happy New Year! We look forward to seeing you in 2020!
