Veteran-owned store featuring hydroponically grown microgreens coming soon to Slate Belt

A new spot for healthful, grown-on-site greens is blooming in the Slate Belt. David Derkits, owner of Bangor-based nuHydro Farms, is expanding the business to include its first brick-and-mortar store at 32 Main St. in downtown Bangor.

Derkits has been operating the hydroponic farm - producing a variety of microgreens - for about a year out of a grow room in his home's basement. The new store, expected to open by April 1, will be roughly triple the size of the business's current space.

"We've outgrown our capacity," Derkits said. "We're going to be in the Nazareth Farmers Market every Saturday, starting in May. So, that will be a 50 or 60-tray-a-week grow. With our other clientele, we wouldn't be able to handle that inside the grow room that we built in the house."
