WHAT DO YOU LIKE ABOUT DOING BUSINESS IN OHIO?
The demand for locally grown fresh food continues to increase in Ohio. There should be great opportunities to supply not only fresh produce but also fresh fish products in the coming years to urban marketplaces.
DESCRIPTION OF BUSINESS:
At RainFresh Harvests we have been growing wholesome foods since 2004 in an ecologically sustainable system -- blending nature with technology to grow the freshest, most delicious and nutritious food possible. Located on a family farm in the countryside a few miles outside of Plain City we believe in growing things a little Greener...with Green Energy, Green Growing Practices and Green Packaging. Crops are grown using sustainable practices year-round in off-the-grid BioIntegrated and Passive Solar Greenhouses. Growing practices include using clean energy from solar and wind power as well as aquaponics, vermicomposting and biointensive raised beds. Our unique and highly-productive systems result in fresh salad greens, herbs and specialty vegetables to sold to local grocers, caterers and restaurants, as well as ornamental koi and mosquitofish for ponds. Plans for the 2014 season include growing bluegills and perch in an aquaponics system.
