At Dandelion Farms we utilize a vertical hydroponic growing system. This growing system is built inside a repurposed 40-foot shipping container. Growing in a closed environment allows us to grow lettuces and hearty greens year-round with weekly harvests. The container’s closed environment keeps unwanted organisms out, greatly reducing the need to use any harmful herbicides or pesticides. The use of hydroponics allows the farm to use 90% less water than traditional farming methods. We use approximately 1 gallon a day. All packaging supplies are reusable or compostable. Our desire is to grow as efficiently as we can with little impact on the environment.
