We are bridging the gap between growing and business management!
JFF became a reality for us (Johnson’s family farm) early in 2009. We began researching the feasibility of producing better quality lettuce in the interior. With extensive consultation with the local small business economic development center and the SCORE program, we invested our small fortune of $300 in a small 36 place NFT system. We quickly realized that in order to recoup our costs we were going to have to grow fresh basil instead of lettuce as we originally intended.
JFF is currently working on many community outreach projects and actively promote self-sustaining agriculture. Our connections with alternative energy suppliers and contractors are the finest in the nation! Remember normal climatic challenges to us are extreme to most in other parts of the world! (Heck our children won’t come in from recess unless it’s colder than -54F!!)
Vertical urban CEA’s and non-standard or off grid requirements are our specialty! No need to recreate the wheel!
