Hydroponics is the science of growing plants in a nutrient solution rather than traditional farming in soil. The plant roots are exposed to an appropriate nutrient solution that allows the plant to grown in a soil less and contamination free environment. Production can be highly increased while minimizing the impacts to the environment from soil degradation, and release of excessive nutrients back into the environment. In addition, only organic based pesticides are used to protect our crops with no impacts to our plants or the natural environment.
Ecotone Farm is a family owned and operated business that provides a farm to table experience. We have 4,000 square feet of climate controlled hydroponic greenhouses for 365 day a year production of our lettuce and leafy greens. We are currently growing Red Butter Leaf, Green Butter Leaf, Red Oak Lettuce, Green Oak Lettuce, Baby Romaine, and Micro Greens.
