A New Mexico Grown Vendor

We are committed to addressing the food crisis in New Mexico where 1 in 5 children go to bed hungry every night. By selling primarily to schools and food banks, our clients can improve the freshness and nutritional content of the meals they serve.

Presently, we produce 4,000 heads of lettuce, bok choi, spinach and culinary herbs every week year round. We are in the process of expanding our growing spaces sufficient to produce 6,000 heads per week.

Do you value fresh local food?

Produce grown aquaponically is highly nutritious and tastes great. Harvested the day it is delivered, it's the freshest food in town.
