Hydroponics is a method of growing plants using mineral nutrient solutions.  Nutrients are delivered to the plant in irrigation water eliminating soil.  Water is re-circulated and none is wasted.  Deciding to grow hydroponically spoke to the family land we had the opportunity to use, where our farm is located (drought-prone Utah), and how we wanted to utilize the relatively small space we had to farm.   


Our growing methods yield at least 8 times more product per acre than field production. We essentially use less space to grow more and we never use genetically modified seeds.  


We understand that water is an invaluable resource, especially here in Utah. Agriculture is the largest consumer of fresh water on the planet. Recirculating hydroponics is the most water-efficient form of agriculture in the world. Our system uses 90% less water than conventional agriculture while drastically reducing agricultural runoff. Runoff is one of the leading causes of global water pollution.


We have carefully designed our year-round greenhouses to reduce energy demand. Computer control systems ensure that climate control equipment operates efficiently to reduce resource consumption. Our facility incorporates several advanced thermal design features that substantially reduce heating demand and fossil fuel use.  

Pesticide/Herbicide Free:

Our produce is free of any chemical pesticides or herbicides.  We implement a comprehensive integrated pest management program (IPM) both in our greenhouses and around the farmyard. Our program employs a multi-faceted approach including stringent preventative and monitoring techniques and biological controls, including beneficial insects.  Growing hydroponically completely eliminates the use of herbicides.    

Food Miles:

All of our produce is bought and sold within a 45 mile radius of the farm, thus reducing transportation fuel consumption, the associated carbon emissions and air pollution.
