About Our Farm
FoodChain’s farm focuses on growing tilapia and leafy greens, including lettuces, herbs, and microgreens! We are also excited about the newest addition to the farm… marine shrimp! Much of the harvest is sold to our immediate neighbors at Smithtown Seafood, as well as a handful of other restaurants and kitchens around Lexington.
By keeping it local we are able to clearly demonstrate the economic and environmental advantages of food staying within the community rather than traveling thousands of miles before ending up in a grocery store.
We offer a Classroom Aquaponics Program (CAP) where we install mini-aquaponics systems in classrooms all over Fayette County. CAP provides a complete and interconnected ecosystem right in the classroom. There are now mini-systems in 22 elementary and middle schools impacting over 10,000 kids’ education everyday!
