Zero-Mile, Nutrient Rich, Naturally Grown Herbs and Greens - Oh so yummy

Our focus

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.

Green Retail

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

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

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.

Latest News

Contrary to Craig Ganssle from #Farmwave says, yes, I give a shit and these were some good insights. Thanks Chris, I think you just gave me a month of blog posts!

There is allot of discussion on the role of urban farming in supporting food deserts. While I will NEVER say that growing local food is a bad thing, I just feel there is more to the story then just deploying a farm in food insecure area and thinking you have cured an ill. As Peter Drucker said, "if you can't measure it, you can't improve it." At Sweetwater Urban Farms, we bring a unique view to the urban farming world. While we are growing our brand and delivering on farms to multiple mixed-use locations we are also focused on helping to manage and fix food insecurity and improve a community's health. It's not an easy task. Working with the local health system you have to create a benchmark. Then you need to engage the community resources to support the farm and help manage the distribution. Who gets the food? How do they get it? What do they do with it? As we all know, changing our diet's and improving our eating habits is tough stuff! It takes time to change habits. Could be generations. But you have to start somewhere and we are excited to be part of that future. ...

Had a chance to visit with on our future Chef/Customers this week. Took him an awesome sample box of our greens and herbs. He was thrilled. The thought of having a farm right on site was just amazing to him. We're excited to be on this journey of providing fresh, nutritious, zero-mile food. Additionally, we provide an experience that you can't get with a container farm. It's hard to really see the operation of a container farm as the room is just so small. Typically 400 sq. ft. We grow in an onsite 3000 sq. ft. greenhouse that allows our customers to experience the farm. With the additional greenhouse for events our customers can get up close an personal and see their food being grown. It's an amazing experience to taste greens and herbs that have just been harvested. They have a whole new taste from produce shipped across country or imported. Our adventure is just started but we are excited for the journey. ...

About US

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.
Tower Farming

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 Tower Gardens® produce living produce with the roots still intact. You cannot buy produce that is fresher and more hyper-local than that.
