A Taste of Success
DeGoede Farms & Hydroponic Lettuce
The pink glow just southeast of Sumner comes from DeGoede Farms, who are on the cutting edge of growing lettuce with hydroponics. Using this revolutionary method means their lettuce needs eight times less land and 10 times less water than growing lettuce the traditional way. Plus, lettuce grown this way can be grown all year long and is not dependent on weather.
