SUSTAINABLY GROWN HYDROPONIC GREENS
We are committed to clean, sustainable growing practices
The modern food system relies on importing food from other regions and countries. How the food is grown and produced is an unknown factor. People are becoming more aware of the issues associated with unknown food production and distribution methods. Derber would like to be able to provide a year round sustainable food product that lets you know how your food is grown.
At Derber Greens, we like to use modern technology and old fashioned common sense to produce a clean fresh product. These processes include closed-loop hydroponic systems using organic seeds, fertilizers and growing media with no pesticides or herbicides. Growing nutritious food responsibly and efficiently all year round is our main goal.
