Our produce is grown hydroponically in vertical towers allowing the growth of more vegetables in less space with 90% less water! The system we use is VERTI-GRO, developed by Tim Carpenter, a pioneer in the development of vertical gardening. Verti-Gro systems have been displayed at EPCOT since 1996 (at that time being futuristic). Verti-Gro systems consist of growing pots stacked on a tower and filled with ground coconut husks. No dirt is used, therefore no harmful soil born bacteria is present. Nutrients and water are dripped at the top of the tower, flowing in an efficient way to the bottom pot with no waste.
Traditional farms are only able to grow at certain times of the year, due to mother nature. With our unique growing system at Sweetgrass Farms, we can sometimes extend these seasonal harvests.
We NEVER use synthetic pesticides, herbicides or animal waste fertilizers.
Our produce is clean!

Please refer to update on Home page regarding our renovation taking place. Please note that because of the changes, our selection for the week of April 1 might be lower than what is listed below as we have replanted many items with our new nutrient system. Strawberries are no longer available as of April 1.
We apologize for being unable to provide tomatoes and a few other things for a few weeks in February. We found that the PH was off in the water from our new well causing damage to many of our plants until we fixed the problem. We've replanted and look forward to offering our usual items by the end of the month. Please have patience with our growth as many things are out of our control. This season has been very hard on Florida farmers in general but hydroponics can usually fare better!
Our harvest for February While supplies last.

Each item is usually available daily until sold out. We will do the best we can to let you know what we have available.
