Welcome to the Farm!
We occupy a 10-acre property in Hermitage, Tennessee, just 20 miles from Downtown Nashville. We produce leafy greens all year long in our controlled environment growing facility. The greenhouse is powered by natural gas, and we keep a backup generator to ensure constant production.
While there are many ways to approach hydroponics, we have found that the nutrient film technique (NFT) is the most effective for our purposes. The modular design of the channels makes them easy to operate and sanitize.
The shallow depth of the channels helps to deliver nutrients directly to the root system of every crop. This method uses up to 90% less water than traditional soil-based farming, and the plants seem to love their home!
The air-filled walls of the greenhouse can withstand substantial wind while providing significant insulation and diffused sunlight. The temperature is regulated by heating fans, a cooling "wet wall", and vented windows. We built the greenhouse to make the most of the sun's energy from sunrise to sunset, as its length runs from north to south.
