Sunset View Aquaponics - Farming of the Future in Amish Country!
Our Amish friend, Sam, has built a "vertical growing system" of the future, virtually unseen outside of Florida and Disney World. Without the use of soil, over 2,000 heads of Boston bib lettuce are grown "in the air" per week, much of it for Whole Food Stores. Tall revolving towers are watered every 20 minutes with nutrients. (No insecticides or herbicides.) You'll meet one of the Amish for a personal tour from the time seeds are "planted" until harvest, and see the entire operation. The greenhouse will forever change your ideas of farming, Amish or otherwise! Group bookings through the Amish Experience, Route 340, Bird-in-Hand. 800-555-2303, ext. 221 or 218.
