At Fenster Farm we grow differently. Hydroponics is our method for growing most of the produce here at Fenster Farm. We have dedicated 3000 square feet of greenhouse space to hydroponic lettuces and leafy greens alone. You have never tasted a better lettuce than the living lettuce that comes from that greenhouse.
Advantages of Hydroponics
Hydroponic systems require no tilling, weeding, heavy-lifting, or extensive stooping and kneeling. Reduce labor without affecting yields.
Hydroponic systems use significantly less water than soil-based farming and allow you to recycle the water you give to your plants.
Food is typically vulnerable to extreme weather and pests. Hydroponic systems can be set up indoors, away from harmful elements.
With plants safe from pests and elements, hydroponic systems allow growers to grow and harvest consistently, regardless of seasonality

Darlene won 2 Blue Ribbons at the Cotton Festival this summer in Somerville TN. One for cake Pops and one for cinnamon rolls. She also won 2 blue ribbons at the Oakland In October Festival for them. That is no coincidence. Her baking skills are for real people. If you are interested in purchasing either of these gems visit our online store.

We currently have 2 fully functioning greenhouses up and a 3rd is almost complete (we are growing in it but there is still work to do to complete the build). I have a 4th on the farm and hope to have it up by Spring of 2019.
