Yarnick’s Farm, well known for their vine ripened tomatoes that taste like a tomato should. Yarnick’s farm grows their tomatoes hydroponically, which means they are grown without soil but in a nutrient rich water solution.
The plants are grown from seeds in the starter greenhouse and “graduate” to the hydroponic greenhouse as seedlings. Seedlings are planted in a sterile rock wool made from melted igneous rock. A computer-controlled system provides water and a changing formula of nutrients to the plants through small plastic tubes. Each plant is pruned to a single leader that is trained to grow up and down a string and can grow to as much as 40 feet in length!
These vegetables are carefully picked by hand at their peak of perfection and either sold next door at the farm market, or shipped by FarmLind Produce to one of the prominent grocery stores in your area. You can’t find fresher produce than what is waiting for you at Yarnick’s Farm market, even if you grow it yourself!
Yarnick’s Farm also grows many vegetables in the real soil of the many fields surrounding the greenhouses and farm market. Dan employs many advanced farming techniques that help him get his vegetable crops ready sooner than the other area farms. When most people are just planting, Yarnick’s Farm is already picking!
You can also stop into their market to try their delicious homemade jams and tomato sauce.
