Farm to Market to Table

Fresh, local and alive — Burleson-grown lettuce is available at City Market Burleson. Yes, in January!

What a journey this has been — and what a year this is going to be!

We made our first delivery of fresh leafy greens grown in our Burleson “Aquahouse” this week to City Market in Burleson, a home town grocery committed to bringing healthy food and great service to residents of the local community.

Fresh, local and alive! is a reality in this forward-thinking North Texas town. And DFW Aquaponics Farms is delighted to play a small part in the good food revolution that is taking root here and all across the country.

This first commercial harvest marks a milestone in the growth of Aquaponics production in the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex. Although we are not the first, nor the largest, we are proud to be a part of it all.

This week marked our first delivery, but we look forward to growing a wide variety of fresh, healthy produce in the months to come — the tomatoes are ripening on the vines and our strawberry plants are beginning to set fruit.

We hope you’ll check back often to see what we have growing — and be sure to shop at City Market to show your support!

Several varieties of lettuce ready for the trip to market!
