Our lettuce is harvested as living lettuce with the root-ball intact to maximize freshness and shelf-life. We grow only leafy varieties that far exceed traditional iceberg in quality, safety and vitamin content.
At KY HYDRO FARM, we heat our green houses with biomass boilers utilizing sawdust and wood chips as our fuel sources. Our heating system allows us to use renewable energy. The green energy has turned out to be a major advantage economically, and a win-win for the environment.
Growing food locally helps raise awareness and appreciation for food production. Many people have no ties or relationship to agriculture so we provide the benefit of educating the consumer on the benefits of food production for everyone.
The FFA Creed begins with "I believe in the future of farming." Farming faces many challenges. By 2050, the world population is expected to increase from seven billion to 10 billion.
