The farm focuses on growing veggies such as Dikon radishes, Napa cabbage, carrots, and an Asian Salad Mix along with the newest Salanova lettuce a red and green double bibb lettuce. Farmer Tim also shared his craft brewed beverages that are naturally fermented. We were fortunate to be able to sample several of these specialty brews, two of which included a black tea base. There was on Oolong Kombucha, Guava Kombucha, Passion Fruit Kombucha in addition to Ginger Beer and Ginger Turmeric. The last two packed quite a punch!
The 7-acre hydroponic greenhouse is naturally ventilated, and provides ideal growing conditions for cucumbers. From the cucumber yield, 95% of the cukes harvested are shipped to Florida while only 5% are for the local market.
There is quite a production going on with this system. The greenhouse is built on a slant and rainwater is collected off the roof. The greenhouse is computer maintained, except for the harvesting and general labor.
