At Sweetwater Urban Farms, we have taken a fresh approach to the urban landscape and methods of producing and supplying produce . We have several areas of focus and would be happy to discuss the areas of your interest.
Farm to Table
Farm to table is one of the hottest trends in the restaurant industry. Chef’s and consumers are focusing on fresh, hyper-local ingredients in their food choices.
As consumers purchase more and more goods online, traditional retailers are struggling with how to differentiate in brick-and-mortar commerce. The bottom line seems to be that while most “stuff” can be bought online, people will still go to brick-and-mortar locations to have “experiences.”
Farm to School
Farm to school enriches the connection communities have with fresh, healthy food and local food producers by changing food purchasing and education practices at schools and early care and education settings.
Food deserts are defined as parts of the country void of fresh fruit, vegetables and other healthy whole foods, found in impoverished areas. This is largely due to a lack of grocery stores, farmers markets, and healthy food providers.
Social determinants of health are “the structural determinants and conditions in which people are born, grow, live, work and age.” They include factors like socioeconomic status, education, the physical environment, employment, and social support networks, as well as access to health care.

In the end it boils down to what we want, clean, nutrient dense, great tasting food. I’ll throw in local now too. Each of those has their own answer.[…]

Welcome to Sweetwater Urban Farms. We’re excited to be part of the growing movement for fresh, locally produced food. We use the latest technology to produce mostly greens and herbs that we deliver to restaurants, hotels, institutions, and schools. We also offer a way to bring this technology into your own home or workplace. We can assist with setting up your own farm or CSA (Community Supported Agriculture). Contact us and let us know how we can help you.
Utilizing aeroponic technology which re-circulates valuable water, Sweetwater Urban Farms uses 95% less water, 90% less space, and no harmful chemical, pesticides or herbicides like Roundup. The technology benefits urban growers and consumers alike, since the aeroponic plants grown on Tower Gardens® are more nutrient-dense than traditional produce, they grow extremely fast and the the plants are harvested with the roots still intact. You cannot buy produce that is fresher and more hyper-local than that.
We use 95% less water.
We grow in 90% less space.
Nutrient Dense Food

We use only natural and biopesticides. Our nutrients are natural earth salts. You can taste the difference.
