Bringing Nutrients Back Where They Belong
Doctors often recommend supplements to fill the nutritional gaps in our diets. Recent studies have found commercially-grown food has 25% less vitamins, minerals and nutrients compared to 30 years ago.* We wanted to change that, so we set out to create a farm that would revolutionize the food we eat by returning it to its purest form, nutrient-rich and delicious.
Where History and Innovation Meet
There’s no question our ancestors were onto something with their nature-based take on farming, but modern-day technology offers new ways to grow nutrient-rich food. That’s why we take what we’ve learned from the past and combine it with a state-of-the-art approach to give us pure, chemical-free, bountiful harvests.
Next-Level Water Conservation
Have you heard of aquaponics? It’s a practice that combines conventional aquaculture—the raising of fish in tanks—with hydroponics—the cultivation of plants in water, creating a symbiotic environment for fish and plants to grow and thrive. It also allows us to grow food indoors all year long, use 90% less water than non-hydroponic farms and encourage a 30% more rapid plant growth... naturally!
Sure, the quality of seeds is an important part of growing nutrient-rich food, but the soil has a lot to do with it, too. We rely on biointensive, no-till farming, cover crops, specialized composting, and crop rotation to get maximum yields from minimum land. We not only focus on what's happening above ground, but also what's occurring below the surface, for healthy soil biology that protects and helps our plants thrive.
Not only does this increase biodiversity, it sustains soil fertility by not disrupting critical microorganisms. Plus, this approach reduces soil erosion by nearly 700%, saves more than 20,000 gallons of water per acre, produces two to six times more food, and builds fertile topsoil 60 times faster than in nature.
