Green Life Farms just opened its flagship hydroponic greenhouse in unincorporated Lake Worth, on U.S. 441. Green Life said its hydroponic greenhouse, expected to be one of the largest indoor hydroponic produce growers in the southeast, occupies nearly three acres and will produce about 700,000 pounds of premium leafy green produce throughout the year.
Unlike conventional farming practices, Green Life Farms' baby leafy greens are grown without soil, then harvested hands-free, reducing the risk of contamination and preserving flavor and freshness.
Green Life Farms has seven varieties of leafy greens including baby spinach, baby arugula, baby kale, baby romaine, red romaine mix, a southern style greens blend, and Asian blend.
Green Life Farms' hydroponic greenhouse features Deep-Water Floating Raft Technology (FRT) from Hydronov. FRT helps to conserve water, using the oxygenated clean water in which the plants grow as a conveyor system, eliminating the costs and maintenance associated with mechanical conveyors.
