Business spotlight: Keeping green through winter

Kale‘n Thyme offers fresh, natural leafy greens and herbs to the community.

"The lack of fresh produce in Cordova is why I wanted to start the farm. I’d just moved up here from Oregon where fresh produce is abundant and can be purchased at any grocery store. I wanted that to be available here in Cordova," says Kristy Andrew, owner of Kale'n Thyme.

"I came across an article about box container farms that were being used in New Jersey. It took me a year to find out who made the farms. I had never farmed before, so I took online classes about hydroponics, aquaponics, germination, and other farming classes. I toured other box container farms, researched different companies, chose one, and moved forward to where we are now with one fully functioning box container farm." 

The company grows staples of green leaf and romaine lettuces, mini and baby leaf lettuces, kale, arugula, basil, chard, chives, cilantro, dill, mizuna, mustard, parsley, rosemary, sage, shiso, and thyme.
