The farm is a hydroponic tiered NFT system (Nutrient Film Technique).
The system will have 7 tiers per floor yielding 3.8 acres of growing area on
a half acre footprint. The facility will begin with lettuce production and then
explore other crops. Projected daily production is 14,000 heads of lettuce,
which will be sold by partnering with local food distributors.
Each head of leaf lettuce will be produced using less than a quarter gallon
of water. This is comparable to field grown lettuce which consumes
anywhere between 10-15 gallons per head.
The farm will provide 20 living wage jobs. As opposed to outdoor lettuce
harvesting work, employment at Kimoto Gardens will be year round and will
not include working in the blazing sun or rain or back pain from constant
bending over to harvest lettuce on the ground.
