Full Nature Farms has landed at Apita, a department store based in Hong Kong, in City Plaza, Taikoo Shing, with its recently introduced Holiday Mix. Full Nature is an aquaponic farm founded by Ray Lok in 2013 and based in the outskirts of Hong Kong.
On top of their supply of flowers, herbs and leafy greens, the Full Nature farm has now added the Holiday Mix. "Elevate your dishes with its burst of flavor, whether it's in soups, salads, pasta, or any culinary creation. Or just use it in your favorite cooking, it can make your dishes."
Although there are other farms that do the same, Ray finds great benefit in starting on a smaller scale. "We come from a farmers' background, and we know how to scale up our production very quickly. That way, we can respond quickly to growing demand," founder Ray Lok shares.
Ray and his team can produce over 10,000 heads of flowers with its current farm design, as these are in high demand in the capital. The Full Nature Farm system is composed of a recirculating system that reduces ammonia and sterilizes the water that goes into the fish tank.
The waste is put into a bioreactor, which converts it into liquid fertilizer. After that, the bioreactor dumps the clean water into the tank again. The water mixed with nutrients drips directly into the root zone. Ray says they can do a cycle of lettuce in around 22 days, and each head is about 200-250 grams.
