A state-of-the-art produce garden was unveiled at the Boar’s Head Resort on Tuesday morning in Albemarle County. The new hydroponic garden is used to grow fresh produce inside the historic Trout House at the resort. The project took three months to complete and is meant to give people a new look at food.
The garden was installed by Babylon Micro-Farms, a startup company from Charlottesville that has also installed its systems at Three Notch'd Brewery and UVA's O-Hill Dining Hall. In August, Babylon CEO Alex Olesen said Boar's Head would be first in North America to have their own private hydroponic farm. Check out the complete NBC29 webticle here!
