A duo of Red and Green Butter lettuce. Butter lettuce is named for its smooth buttery texture and delicate flavors. Excellent as a stand alone salad or mixed with other types to create a variety of textures, flavors and colors. We harvest our lettuce to order and with the roots still attached for maximum nutrition, freshness and flavor!
By buying our Aquaponically grown Butterheads, you just saved 14+ gallons of water compared to similar lettuce grown in soil. Thank you for supporting Sustainable Agriculture.
Ouroboros Farms is a commercial Aquaponics Farm in Half Moon Bay and Pescadero. Aquaponics is the combination of Aquaculture (the raising of fish) and Hydroponics (growing plants in water). We feed our fish Organic Fish Food which becomes nutrients for the plants. This method of food production has several advantages. Because both nutrients and water are always available to the plants, they grow up to 30% faster, can be planted up to 10x more densely, and use only 5-10% of the water required of a similar sized soil farm. In other words, we can grow upwards of 20 times as much produce with the same amount of water!
