We are very excited to announce that Walnut Creek Farm has broken ground on a new aquaponics greenhouse in order to better serve the school districts of the greater Dallas/Ft. Worth area. Demand for healthy and fresh produce has been exploding for the last few years as schools and restaurants demand better, fresher, and healthier options for their customers. Walnut Creek Farm has been happily serving the local market with fresh, local, non-local, organic, and non-organic produce since 2005 and we have been struggling to keep up with demand.
This new greenhouse is a significant investment which is going to allow us to keep up with the DFW demand for fresh, local, and organic produce. We hope to finish this project in the Fall of 2017 and hope to have our first crop of lettuce harvested by the end of this year.
We are super excited about this next step in our business and cannot wait to be able to help even more people live happier and healthier lifestyles.
