Growing the tomatoes hydroponically allows the farm to control the growing environment enabling an extended harvest season especially for a climate like Bozeman. The temperature, humidity and watering are all controlled electronically. Bees zip from flower to flower, while thousands of predatory wasps and ladybugs act as guards against potentially damaging thrips and aphids. No pesticides are ever used.

Though started as small family operated farm, five part time staff have been employed to handle the care and needs of the plants and harvest of the tomatoes. With two greenhouses, utilizing 6,000 square feet and 1,800 plants, about 2,000 pounds of tomatoes are harvested each week at peak production. The tomatoes are picture perfect and taste better than they look. Lots of love and care go into the production of the tomatoes.
