the Mission & Vision of Francis & Thatcher Farms:
By utilizing Greenhouse Hydroponics, we cultivate superior quality crops that grow faster and larger than their soil-grown counterparts. And because we grow inside a greenhouse, we don't use pesticides, don't produce harmful agricultural run-off, and don't waste water. Besides being environmentally friendly, Greenhouse Hydroponics also allow the ability to grow a variety of crops year round. It doesn't matter if we are in a sleet storm or a heat wave outside. The greenhouse constantly maintains optimal growing conditions. The result is a consistently fresh, living, lettuce mix or, virtually any green leafy vegetable you desire for your home, restaurant or market.
