Local Appetite Growers founders Will Mastin and Karl Brantley formed Local Appetite Growers in 2012 with the mission of providing the freshest and healthiest produce to the local community. We now specialize in growing Hydroponic Lettuces and specialty produce in a no-till bed system. The farm is now open for many events including Venue Rentals, on site Market Days, and U-Pick Flowers.
We specialize in growing the finest gourmet lettuces. We grow the lettuce in hydroponic growing channels in controlled environment greenhouses. Hydroponic growing techniques use water and nutrient solution in place of the soil, providing a very clean and healthy plant. This system allows us to produce lettuce year round.
Our Barn Venue is available for rent for events and parties. Have your own event at our farm in an outdoor setting. Please contact us with questions for your next event.
