CSA: Szarek Farms, LLC
Bernie & Denise Szarek have over 30 years of farming and growing experience. We grow using HYDROPONICS and we have been growing using hydoponic methods for 12 years. As "Good Stewards" of the land we feel very strongly about this growing method. Our ebb and flow system for our lettuce is a closed nutrient system, no water is wasted. Our tomatoesand greens are grown in "coir" (shredded cocoa filber), using drip emitters. We use 80% less water than a typical farm. We also use less land. We grow vertically, wherever we can, this allows us to grow 4-6 time more food, in the same space 1 plant takes to grow in dirt. We use IPM (integrated pest management) we eradicate pests in the early stages of the problem by using natural enemies (beneficial insects), natural solutions and absolutely NO pesticides or insecticides.
Hydoponic growing helps eliminate soil borne diseases. We eliminate any disease born from soil containing high levels of e-coli, salmonella, etc., beacuse we use no soil or manure based nutrients.
