An Enlightening Tour of Home Town Farms

Home Town Farm Nearly 30 of our members recently met for a look at a new way of farming.

Home Town Farms has greenhouses covering 165,000 sq. ft. The farm harvests 300,000 - 400,000 pounds of produce per acre whereas traditional farms harvest 20,000 - 40,000 pounds of produce per acre.

Home Town Farms is USDA certified which means no insecticides are used; they use natural methods to control pests. Plants are grown vertically; they use 80% less water than conventional farms.

Organic produce includes strawberries; hybrid and heirloom tomatoes; cucumbers; squash and zucchini.

Their mission is to provide organic produce directly to the local community at affordable prices. We were surely impressed and are eager to spread the word. Learn more Click the Flickr icon on the sidebar to see more photos of the visit.
