4-H students at Micro Farms

Marshall County 4-H Electric students had the opportunity to visit Micro Farms LLC in Nappanee. The students learned about growing and harvesting fresh produce using high-tech aeroponics/hydroponics. The students even went home with some delicious fresh veggies!

The produce is grown using sustainable methods and without the need for chemicals. Vegetables are harvested daily and are the highest quality.
