The Hope Farm utilizes a myriad of crops across our unique farming environments. We use hydroponics, raised beds and an orchard to supply our culinary and bar team fresh ingredients. Using these techniques allow our guests to encounter a true farm-to-table experience like no other.
The Hope Farm utilizes various practices of sustainable farming to grow healthy, nutrient-rich foods. Every aspect of the farm is designed to maximize output and minimize the negative impacts of traditional farming methods.
Our hydroponic container gardens use one one-hundreth of the Earth's footprint as one acre of land, but each can produce the same amount of food.
We choose not to use pesticides which can end up in your water or food. We also utilize waste materials from local businesses as a food source for our mushrooms. The waste product from our mushrooms is then composited into a nutrient-rich fertilizer.
Additionally, this sustainable farming method uses 90% less water than traditional farming methods.
Utilizing our unique growing methods we are able to provide fresh fruits, vegetables and mushrooms to our guests. Gourmet mushrooms are a specialty at The Hope Farm and we offer a variety of species that are not native to the coastal area of Alabama.
Our varieties include: Oyster Mushrooms, Lions Mane, Maitake, Chestnut and Pioppino
Using hydroponics, raised beds and nurturing fruits we grow: leafy greens, herbs, lettuce, satsumas, blueberries, figs, and other unique and seasonal varieties.
