Farm Feature: Hilltop Greens

Apr 15, 2021

Hilltop Greens

If you are driving past Dyersville on hyw 20 you are bound to see our greenhouses out at FarmTek. We have been growing fresh veggies in the greenhouses for years, but with the increase in both supply and demand, we decided to ramp things up and run the greenhouses as if they were their own separate business. Today, Hilltop Greens supplies restaurants, schools, and the community with fresh local produce all year round. All of our produce is grown hydroponically. Which means the plants are grown in nutrient rich water instead of soil. This allows us to produce more food in a smaller space, as well as shelter our plants from the outdoor elements and pests. We are very proud to say that we are pesticide free and grow our plants with tremendous care. Some of the veggies we grow include multiple varieties of lettuce, spinach, kale, basil, cucumbers, and cherry tomatoes.
