Pesticide-free greens from Nelligrow Hydroponics

Steph and Mark are a pair that know a lot about the benefits of growing greens that are herbicide and pesticide fee. That’s how they do it with their hydroponic set up, Nelligrow Hydroponics, located around five kilometres out of Nelligen on the South Coast of NSW. They set up Nelligrow Hydroponics farm around two years ago and are set to start at our Market in time for our 15th birthday on Saturday 16th March. They grow a good range of lettuce and herbs with no herbicides, no pesticides, and no chemical sprays. Steph says the hydroponic set up and the fact that the plants are off the ground gives them greater control over insects and pests.

Nelligrow produce Baby Cos, Red Oak Lettuce and Green Oak Lettuce, along with watercress, salad mixes, herbs such as coriander, basil, chives, parsley and beetroot leaves, and microgreens. They will have their range available at the Market including whole heads of lettuce, washed bags and punnets of micro herbs. Stop by and check them out.
