This starts with seed selections. For us, we have taken 3 years to find the right seed for the correct times to plant and start. Each plant has very specific needs.

450 pounds of Basil per week – April/May 2012

Here at Lilypad Farm, seed selection is carefully viewed. The actual germination is the ultimate key. Smaller germinated plants remain smaller thru the entire process. Our farm partners take great care in the preparation of the seedlings. Once the smallest of germination happens, the curation process begins. Simply put, we only transplant the strongest and best harvests. This has ensured returning customers and Superior Product. We will eat, and sell only the Highest quality food. There is no room for error.

Lilypad Farm can post numbers in the 90% from each raft. This has been my path. “Putting fine, handcrafted food in the hands of people”,…my favorite saying. This has a limiting effect on my diversity. Something that is done by choice. There are markets for all types of plants and flowers too. Lilypad Farm is known for consistent clean foods. Deep water Raft Culture will let the grower bring to it’s customers Live product that has very few Rivals!
